Reconstructing N2-fixing cyanobacterial blooms in the Baltic Sea
beyond observations using 6- and 7-methylheptadecane in sediments as specific biomarkers
"Summer cyanobacterial blooms represent a threat to the Baltic Sea ecosystem, causing deoxygenation of the bottom water and the spread of the so-called dead zones. The history of the Baltic Sea cyanobacterial blooms is known from in situ and satellite observations since the early 1980s but is still not well understood. [...]"
