This 1st Baltic Earth Conference intends to bring together the relevant communities to discuss the topic of the conference: “Multiple drivers for Earth System changes in the Baltic Sea Region”. The scope is to describe the different factors for change, their impacts on the Earth system of the Baltic Sea region, and to demonstrate the capacity to model any of these factors in a single or coupled approach.
