Abstract

The Baltic Sea is a semi-enclosed European inland sea forming one of the world’s largest brackish water areas. This ecosystem is characterized by fluctuations in the natural environment connected with infrequent and sporadic flushing of the deeper basins with more oxygenated water from outside. Dynamics and variability of the processes affecting water mass exchange and renewal are strongly related to meteorological forcing factors, especially the intensity, pattern and frequency of the air pressure fronts migrating from the North Atlantic (Miętus, 1998; Piechura et al., 2006).
