SHEBA ́s research and coordination is structured into 7 working packages (WPs), of which WP6 and WP7 are overarching activities interconnecting all other WPs (see
figure 1). In working package 1 the overall scene concerning maritime policy is set and shipping related scenarios are developed, its outcome feeds into the topical
working packages “Air Pollution” (WP2), “Water pollution” (WP3), and “Noise” (WP4). Results from all working packages will be the bases of an “Integrated Assessment”
which is central in WP5.
