Author: Nils Kajrup


The temperatures varied between 9.3°C in the northern Batlic proper and 12.5°C in the Skagerrak. Nutrient concentrations were generally normal for the season with a few exceptions. The bottom water oxygen deficiency in the southeastern Katteagatt was restored to normal oxygen concentrations. In the Baltic Sea the oxygen concentrations still were very low and hydrogen sulphide was present in the whole area except in the Arkona Basin and at station BCSIII-10.
