The results of field work carried out in 1997 within the UNESCO-IOC-HELCOM Baltic Floating University (BFU) project are presented. In the summer of 1997, the BFU field work covered four different coastal environments: (i) the Murmansk coast of the Barents Sea; (ii) the tidal, saline, estuarine Kandalaksha Gulf in the semi-enclosed White Sea; (iii) the brackish, estuarine eastern Gulf of Finland; and (iv) the tideless, brackish western Estonian archipelago, which juts out into the semienclosed Baltic Sea. The areas studied experience significant impact from human activities, such as: the development of new port facilities in Luga Bay (eastern Gulf of Finland) and in Kandalaksha Gulf; mariculture development along the coasts of the Barer& and White Seas; a tidal power station in Kislaya Bay (Barents Sea), etc. Socio-economic studies in the Kandalaksha District in the Murmansk region were, for the first time, included in the BFU programme as the essential component of integrated coastal management.
