NRP EVIDEnT cooperates with Baltic Earth (Earth System Science for the Baltic Sea Region). The goal of Baltic Earth is to achieve an improved Earth system understanding of the Baltic Sea region. Baltic Earth is the successor to BALTEX that was terminated in June 2013 after 20 years and two successful phases. The research components of BALTEX continue to be relevant, but now have a more holistic focus encompassing processes in the atmosphere, on land and in the sea, as well as processes and impacts related to the anthroposphere. Specific interdisciplinary research challenges have been formulated by the Baltic Earth Interim Science Steering Group to be approached by the new programme in the coming years.

Research program EVIDEnT addresses all 10 tasks of 1st Priority “Environment, Climate and Energy” subtask 1.2 “Environment and Climate” of the State research program for 2014-2017. Program is structured in 5 projects. 1st Project (Tasks 1 and 2 of Tender) will adapt/elaborate models for wind fields, wave and current dynamic, developed wave and current measurement sensor prototypes and performed field measurements, and performed food chain study in system lake-river-sea. 2nd Project (Task 3 of Tender) will investigate introduced species in freshwater ecosystem (HEP reservoir), port and adjacent to them areas, and in the sea. 3rd Project (Tasks 4, 5 and 9 of Tender) will develop tool to estimate air emissions and calculate future scenarios, survey farms and estimate GHG emissions from agricultural sector, and estimate integral impact from forestry. 4th Project (Tasks 7 and 8 of Tender) will perform studies of biodiversity on all levels, model biotopes and estimate monetary value of selected ecosystem services. 5th Project will develop climatic scenarios including extreme events, develop/improve hydrogeological model including infiltration from surface water measurements..
