Description 
Summary

The Gulf of Bothnia Year 1991 was a multi-disciplinary programme aiming at a better knowledge of the ecological system of the northern part of the Baltic Sea. It included various elements, such as input of components from land and atmosphere, physical transports within and between basins, as well as the distribution of pollutants in the sea from different sources. Critical chemical and biological processes regarding the internal turnover of nutrients have been studied. The data are quality inspected. Checks were made by manual control.
