During the past three years SNOOP's partners made an excellent work to find out how ship exhaust emissions are effecting to marine environment and human health in port areas. The project has achieved interesting results about ship emissions, their health effects and effects on marine environment. SNOOP has produced important information for the decision makers about Baltic shipping and its emissions, for examble producing AIS data quality analysis for HELCOM and by developing future scenarios for the emissions of shipping.
During the project we have done air quality measurements in the ports of Helsinki, Turku and Tallinn and at the islands of Aegna and Harmaja as well as on board and from an aeroplane. The results of these measurements have been used throughout the whole project. One of these applications is a marine impact model which helps to estimate additional athmospheric deposition of nitrogen caused by shipping. Other on is an estimation of impacts on human health.
The project has now reached its end. Thank you for your interest.

January 9th 2013
The project will organize the 3rd and at the same time, the last, Policy Forum in Tallinn on April 12th together with SNOOP's sister project BSR InnoShip. The Policy Forum will concentrate i.e. to health effects of shipping-induced air emissions and the effects of the emissions to marine environment.
Extra financing granted for SNOOP
December 14th 2012
The Central Baltic INTERREG IV A Programme 2007-2013 has granted extra financing for SNOOP. With the granted extra financing approximately 200 000 euros the Finnish Meteorological Institute is able to establish a clear cause-effect chain (audit trail) for ship emissions. The audit trail for the maritime emissions requires airborne measurements across the land-sea interface. In the Gulf of Finland, this will be accomplished by flights between the northern and southern coasts, crossing the shipping lane in the middle of the Gulf of Finland.
The 5th Partner meeting will take place in September
June 9th 2011
The 5th SNOOP Partner meeting will be take place on September 14th at the venue of Finnish Meteorological Institute in Helsinki.
May 23rd 2011
The second SNOOP Policy Forum was arranged at the venue of Maritime Centre Forum Marinum on May 19th. The Policy Forum gathered around 40 participants interested in shipping-induced air emissions and solutions for cutting down the emissions. Participants represented ports, cities, universities and marine business.
The presentations given can be loaded below.
April 26th 2011
The finalised programme for SNOOP Policy Forum is published. Check the programme here. The subject of the Policy Forum is shipping-induced NOx, SOx and particle matter emissions. The Policy Forum is arranged at the venue of Maritime Centre Forum Marinum in Turku in cooperation with Baltic Sea Forum.
March 10th 2011
During the project three Policy Forums will be arranged to strengthen the linkage between stakeholders and the project. Now it is time for the second SNOOP Policy Forum which will be arranged in co-operation with the Baltic Sea Forum on May 19th 2011 in Turku. The programme of the Policy Forum will be published in the near future.

The 4th SNOOP Partner Meeting took place on February 7th 2011 at the venue of the FMI in Helsinki.
January 13th 2011
The kick-off seminar of the BSR InnoShip project "Clean and Competitive Baltic Shipping - How Can We Do It?" was organised 1 February 2011 in Turku, Finland.
The seminar was targeted at key environmental and industrial maritime stakeholders, decision makers, authorities, politicians and other interested actors around the Baltic Sea.
The seminar gathered together different actors from the fields of maritime industry, environment and economic life to discuss and increase the dialogue between different sectors related to ship emission reductions, competitiveness of the Baltic Sea shipping and the challenges and possibilities in combining these two elements together. In relation to the air emission reductions on ships and in ports, the seminar provided a comprehensive overview to the current political atmosphere and an outlook to innovative technological solutions.
July 5th 2010
Due to summer holidays it was decided to combine the 3rd and 4th Partner Meetings. The 3rd SNOOP Partner Meeting took place on September 14th 2010 at the venue of the FMI in Helsinki.
