The conditions in the deep basins were still coined of the aftereffects of the MBI in January 2003. However, the start of a new stagnation period could be stated. The deep water of the Bornholm Basin became anoxic with -3.12 ml/l H2S, highest ever observed (cf. Fig. 3). In the eastern Gotland Basin, the whole water column between 150 m and the bottom was anoxic. In the western Gotland Basin, no definite improvement of the situation could be stated (NAUSCH et al., 2006).
