In 1992, the Klaipeda Hydrometeorological Observatory became an institution that was first called Lithuanian Laboratory of Marine Research. After the reorganisation of the Environmental Protection Department to Ministry in Lithuania, it was renamed as Centre of Marine Research. On January 1, 2010, due to reorganization of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the Centre of Marine Research was incorporated into EPA as Marine Research Department. Department is located in Klaipeda but the main office of Environmental Protection Agency is located in Vilnius, Lithuania. All data of Center of Marine Research were taken by EPA. The actual name is now Marine Research Department of Environmental Protection agency. After their previous permission, the data are from ICES Dataset on Ocean Hydrography.

* These data were provided via the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) which is the national data host for hydrophysical/chemical marine data from the Swedish national monitoring programmes.
In the case of the Swedish river load data for the period 2001-2012, these were extracted on 05.12.2013 from SLU's environmental data base for soil-water environment and SMHI. Data has been developed within the Swedish co-ordinated environmental monitoring by the Environmental Protection Agency, Havs- och vattenmyndigheten and the respective Vattenvårdsförbund".
