Similar to 2007, several barotropic and baroclinic inflow events were able to ventilate the near-bottom layer from the Bornholm Basin to the Gdańsk Deep several times. In contrast, conditions in the eastern and western Gotland Basin were coined by the lasting stagnation period. Thus, the annual mean of H2S concentrations in the Gotland Deep decreased continuously from -0.23 ml/l (2005) to -2.22 ml/l (2008). In the Landsort Deep, the hydrogen sulphide concentration increased continuously during the last 5 years (NAUSCH et al., 2009).
