Cruise report from R/V Aranda week 1, 2016

The temperature in the surface water was above normal in the Baltic Proper. The concentrations of nutrients were generally normal for the season in Skagerrak and Kattegat. In the Baltic Proper the concentration of phosphate was elevated in the western parts while the silicate concentration was well …

Cruise report from R/V Aranda week 46, 2015

The stratification in the open sea areas of Skagerrak was very weak. In the Kattegat and the Baltic Proper sea surface temperature values was slightly above normal. Surface nutrients showed mainly values typical for the season, except for silicate which had concentrations well above normal in the …

Cruise report from R/V Aranda week 42, 2015

The surface water in Skagerrak and Kattegat was somewhat cooler, around 11°C, than the surface water in the Baltic Proper where there was about 13°C. Inorganic nitrogen (NO2+NO3) in surface waters were close to the detection limit in all regions. The concentrations of phosphate were low …

Cruise report from R/V Aranda week 36, 2015

The water temperature in the surface layer had now increased and was substantially normal for the season. In the southern and southeastern Baltic Proper relatively high concentrations of phosphate and silicate were measured. The large inflow that occurred in December 2014 could not be seen further …

Cruise report from R/V Aranda week 24-25, 2015

The water temperature in the surface layer was essentially normal for the season. Spring bloom was now over in the Skagerrak and Kattegat areas and nutrients showed low concentrations. Inorganic nitrogen was below the detection limit, while there were small amounts of phosphate left. In the Baltic …
