Ocean acidification and warming in the Baltic Sea : effects on diazotrophy and pelagic biogeochemistry
This doctoral dissertation presents the results from two independent mesocosm studies on naturally present summer plankton communities in the Baltic Sea. The aim was to investigate the impact of ocean acidification (increased CO2 concentration and decreased seawater pH) as well as the combination of ocean acidification and ocean warming (increased seawater temperature) on the abundance and activity of diazotrophic organisms and on N-limited plankton communities.
