UR Samtiden

The strait that divides and unites

Öresund was closed to being knocked out in the late 1980s. But today, Öresund is seen as a model for how to change an exposed and vulnerable sea area. Michael Palmgren, operations manager at Naturum Öresund, shows and talks about efforts and improvements, and not least about the fascinating life below the surface in Öresund. Without a clean, healthy and productive sea, humans, animals and plants on land will not survive. Recorded on September 3, 2021 at naturum Öresund in Malmö. Organizer: naturum Öresund.

Lectures on life below the surface and the marine environment in Öresund.

Recorded on September 3, 2021 at naturum Öresund in Malmö.

Are you Ocean literate?

At naturum Öresund, we want to make the world that lies beneath the surface visible and show how it is connected to us humans, says Elinor Hermansson, nature guide at naturum Öresund. Wee want to create ocean literacy through marine education and a mix of theory and practice. Elinor Hermansson explains the seven basic principles on which Ocean literacy is based. Recorded on September 3, 2021 at naturum Öresund in Malmö. Organizer: naturum Öresund.

What is plankton?

Plankton are small, but so numerous that they are of enormous importance for oxygen production, carbon binding and for reducing the acidification of the world's oceans. Plankton are also the beginning of the food web in the sea - without plankton no fish. But they are also fascinating plants and animals in their own right. Alexander Cammaroto, nature guide at Naturum Öresund, tells and shows examples from a microscopic diverse world. Recorded on September 3, 2021 at naturum Öresund in Malmö. Organizer: naturum Öresund.

Through a diving mask

Every time the scuba diver Jonny Magnusson puts his head under the water, he is enchanted by the world he encounters. For 40 years he has followed Öresund through a diving mask. Here he shows and tells what he gets to see, from the shoal of sandeel at the bathing jetty, to the eelgrass, to mussels, sea trout, lumpfish and many other fascinating plants and animals.

Our history beneath the surface

Beneath the surface in Öresund, there are many exciting hidden traces of our history. It could be plants and flint axes from a time when you could walk barefoot from Scania to Denmark, or wrecks from more recent naval battles. Michael Palmgren, operations manager at naturum Öresund, shows and talks about findings. He talks about the wreck Nya Svärdet from the battle of Öresund 1658 and the wreck Charlotte Amalie from the battle of Copenhagen 1801. Recorded on September 3, 2021 at naturum Öresund in Malmö.

Building for blue biodiversity

When the Öresund Bridge was to be built, many were worried that it would lead to bad consequences for the underwater environment. But mussels established themselves on the bridge piers and in the surrounding sea a rich plant and animal life flourishes today. Kjell Andersson, now retired research engineer, monitored the bridge construction as environmental inspector and shares how he studied and followed the life below the surface.

Our vital sea

Without the ocean, humans would not be able to live on this planet. As the earth's largest ecosystem, it contributes with many things that we need to survive and feel good, so-called ecosystem services. Oxygen production, carbon sequestration and water purification are some of the things we depend on. In this lecture nature guides Elinor Hermansson and Alexander Cammaroto talk about how and why the sea is so important to us. Recorded on September 3, 2021 at naturum Öresund in Malmö. Organizer: naturum Öresund.

The Oceans nursery

Along Ribersborg beach in Malmö you can find lots of animals that are fun to take a closer look at. Elinor Hermansson and Alexander Cammaroto at naturum Öresund have been out netting along the shoreline. Recorded on September 3, 2021 at naturum Öresund. Organiser: naturum Öresund.
