Cruise report from R/V Aranda week 50, 2015

The water temperature was slightly above normal throughout the study area. The concentrations of nutrients in surface water were normal for the season in the Skagerrak and the Kattegat. In the Baltic proper, concentrations of inorganic nitrogen (NO2 + NO3) were at normal levels in the surface …

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 30, 2015

The water temperature in the surface layer was essentially normal or somewhat lower than normal for the season. In the southern and southeastern Baltic Proper very high concentrations of phosphate and silicate were measured. The large inflow that occurred in December 2014 had now reached the …

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 …

Cruise report from R/V Aranda week 17, 2015

The water temperature in the surface layer was essentially normal for the season. In the Skagerrak nutrient concentrations in the surface water has risen slightly since the previous survey, while they in the Kattegat showed, for the season, typical concentrations. Phosphate and silicate were …

Cruise report from R/V Aranda week 12, 2015

The water temperatures in the surface layer were essentially normal for the season. In the Kattegat as well as in the coastal zone of Skagerrak the spring bloom was in full progress and nutrients showed low concentrations. In the Baltic Proper spring bloom had started in the Arkona while winter …

Cruise report from R/V Aranda week 8, 2015

The water temperature in the surface layer was normal in the Skagerrak and Kattegat while it was slightly above normal in the Baltic Proper. Surface nutrients showed for the season almost normal values, except for silicate and phosphate which, in parts of the Baltic, were elevated.

The effects of …
