The development of H2S in the Gotland Deep in May 1978 indicated the beginning of a new stagnation period in the Baltic Proper. Anoxic conditions extended in the eastern Gotland Basin in August and November but were also observed in the western Gotland Basin in November. Low concentrations of H2S were measured in the Bornholm Basin in August. Oxic conditions prevailed in the Gdańsk Basin in 1978 (NEHRING & FRANCKE, 1980b).
