Waters and the sea

The section Waters and the Sea contains information on water bodies and water resources and their status, monitoring, use and restoration, and the prevention of oil and chemical accidents at sea. This section also contains material on the protection of waters and the Baltic Sea, and the related cooperation. Other information on the Baltic Sea is available in the Baltic Sea Portal. Järviwiki is the gateway to a wiki-type web service specifically created for lakes and sea areas.
