Oxygen consumption in the Baltic proper

Total oxygen consumption rate, averaged over 1957-1982, and its variations with salinity in the deep water of the Baltic proper are calculated by a system of diagnostic advection-diffusion equations in a "natural" coordinate frame of reference. Although the data set used is not ideal for a more thorough investigation of the sensitivity of the model, an oxygen budget is formulated. A gross consumption rate of 3 x 10-9 mol m-3 s-1 is obtained. Further, a total consumption of about 0.14 x 10-6 mol m-2 s-1 is found, which is equivalent to an annual carbon input of 10 g C m-2 yr-1.
