We review the last decade’s major achievements in Baltic Sea physical oceanography.
Observational, gridded, and model data for the region are increasingly available.
Turbulence and strait flows are better understood based on high-resolution data.
Baltic system functioning is better understood on decadal and centennial scales.
Coupled Baltic Sea–North Sea systems are being better modelled.
