The PhD thesis will preferably consist of four studies. Two studies shall be developed by the doctoral student herself/himself, the topics for which can be freely decided, while the two other topics have already been largely determined and have the working titles “The effects of mild winters on production capacity in forestry and mining” and “The impact of seasonal weather variability on connectivity and transportation across the Baltic Sea”. However, the PhD student is free to further develop them thematically at her/his own discretion.
