Oxygen was present in the bottom water of the Bornholm Basin until May 1989. Later on, H2S developed. In the Gdańsk Basin, no H2S was detected during the whole year. Due to the ongoing stagnation, H2S was measured below the halocline at all investigations in the eastern Gotland Basin in high concentrations. Whereas no anoxic conditions were observed in the western Gotland Basin, low concentrations of H2S were measured in the northern Basin in May, April, and November 1989 (NEHRING & FRANCKE, 1990b).
