About Anders Omstedt

Professor emeritus in oceanography

Research Interests

Oceanography especially lakes and coastal seas. How do the Earth water bodies function and how will future changes influence them? To answer these questions we need to develop our understanding of water, energy, nutrient, carbon cycles, ecosystem changes and human impacts. The coupling between the water bodies and the atmosphere and surrounding land surfaces are also of major interest. Main research metods are detection studies by using and developing long-time series and attribution and scenario studies by using and developing aquatic process oriented models. Recent research focuses are the human role and the connection between science and the arts.
