Cruise report from R/V Aranda week 6, 2014

In Skagerrak and Kattegat, surface salinity was much lower than usual, which indicate a strong influence of outflowing Baltic water. The mapping of nutrients in the Kattegat showed small variations and overall normal concentrations. In the Baltic Proper the concentrations of phosphate and silicate …

Cruise report from KBV 002 Triton week 48-49, 2013

Nutrient levels were largely normal in the whole investigated area. In the Baltic Proper, oxygen concentrations below 2 ml/l (hypoxia) were found at depths exceeding 70 to 80 metres, while a total deficiency of oxygen (anoxia) was found below 70 to 125 metres. All parameters in the Gulf of …
