R3i inspired in Copenhagen

On the 4th of December, the LUCCI young scientist group R3i went to Copenhagen for teambuilding and inspiration. Several hours were spent on the National museum, where topics such as dendrochronology, pollen dating and Scandinavian history were discussed.

As the winter darkness set in, they continued to Tivoli in order to enjoy the Christmas decorations, drink some glögg or glühwein and enjoy other team-building activities.

In a joint effort, the R3i members won a new mascot for R3i, a plush toy in the shape of a squared frog. It was named “LP-Jay” and both Niklas and Ylva are sharing custody of the frog on R3is account.


The Baltic Sea is recovering

35 years ago the Baltic Sea water was not allowed to swim in at some locations, due to contamination. Today that trend has turned for the first time in many decades.Even though there are still algal blooms and dead seafloors, the adding of nutrients from land to the Baltic is decimating. Those good news comes from a report of a study made by researcher from Sweden, Denmark and Finland. Daniel Conley at Department of Geology at Lund University, and a member of LUCCI, is one of the researchers.

- We can see that the water quality has improved in most parts of the Baltic Sea, he says to Hållbarhetsforum.

However at some parts near the seafloor the quality is still worsen, but overall sea sea is getting better.The study is outlining the over-fertilization in various parts of the Baltic between 1901 and 2012. (Source: and
