Original versionThis report is not to be cited without prior reference to the authors
Hydrography, currents, nutrients, water transparency, in situ chlorophyll fluorescence and primary production were studied during a cruise with R/V "G.O. Sars" to the west coast of Denmark, Skagerrak and Kattegat from 27. November to 6. December 1989. The Jutland Current (JC) was partly blocked during this period, probably because of an intensified inflow of water from the central and northern North Sea ( Northern Jutland Current, NJC). This suggests that the NJC can exert a substantial dynamic control of the outflow of nutrientrich water from the coastal areas of the southern North Sea.
