As in 1991, week inflows into the Baltic Proper supplied the deep water of the Bornholm Basin with oxygen in February and April 1992. Effects of this event were also observed in the eastern Gotland Basin. However, this inflow could not replace the anoxic deep water below 125 m to 150 m, which was characterized by extremely high concentrations of H2S. No data were available from the Gdańsk Basin and the northern and western Gotland Basin in 1992 (NEHRING et al., 1993).
