Description 
Summary

Along two sections (Hanstholm - Kristiansand and Hallo (Sweden) westwards) in the Skagerrak standard water bottle hydrography including some chemical constituents and simultaneous current observations were carried out in order to elucidate features of the large-scale circulation and mixing. Gelatine pendulum current meters were used. The deepest current meter was attached 10 m above the bottom. The depth of the top current meter varied.
