Abstract: The environmental state of the Baltic Sea system is influenced by both natural and anthropogenic factors. Water exchange with the adjacent ocean and within the system depend on large-scale atmospheric circulation and properties of the straits separating the different sub-basins. Physical processes control the stratification and determine residence times of water and dissolved substances, which has a major impact on the oxygen situation. Deep water oxygen demand is coupled to the production of or... more
