(1) Role of oceans in climate change and its effects for the European Seas: climate forming forming oceanographic phenomena including heat and salt fluxes and its variability in the Nordic Seas; mass and heat exchange between sea and atmosphere; observation and modelling of radiation fluxes in the sea - atmosphere system; mesoscale structures; water mass formation and internal waves; energetics of primary production; climate induced changes in the marine food web; biodiversity of glaciated fjords along environmental gradients. (2) Natural and antropogenic variability of the Baltic Sea environment; exchange of water masses in the Baltic Sea; monitoring of the Baltic Sea ecosystem using passive remote sensing methods; geochemistry and geochronology of organic matter in the Baltic Sea; speciation of heavy metals in sediment and water; accumulation and distribution of natural and artificial radionuclides in marine organisms, sediments and water; analytical and numerical investigations of sound scattering by aggregations; sound detection of gas bubble concentrations in sea water. (3) Contemporary changes of the coastal ecosystems in the shelf seas: pelago-benthic coupling and sedimentation rates in coastal waters; numerical modelling of water circulation in coastal zone; sandy littoral ecology within the Integrated Coastal Management System.
Genetic and physiological mechanisms of functioning marine organisms; principles of marine biotechnology: genetic and endocrinological mechanisms in marine fish and invertebrates; genetic polymorphism of some marine and fresh water species with the application of molecular markers; biological role of bacterial bioluminescence in the marine environment.
