ObjectivesThe objective of this cruise was to sample the major fresh water input sources of TEIs to the central Baltic, to obtain high resolution profiles of TEIs across the redox cline at the central Baltic anoxic deep basins, and to sample the exchange with the western Baltic through surface export and the only deep channel permitting salt water inflow. The expected outcome of this study is the identification of sinks and sources of TEIs in marginal seas and an understanding of relevant processes governing the export and import fluxes, particularly their modification by redox cycling in the water column.
