Annual fluctuations and distributions of nitrate during the 1980s in areas along the Danish west coast and in the northern Kattegat have been examined and compared. Transport of nitrate brought about by the Jutland Coastal Current (JCC) along the Danish west coast from the easter North Sea to the northern Kattegat seems to occur sporadically during the winterjearly spring monthse However, such events do not seem to occur every year. Quantification of the actual transport of nutrients to the Kattegat via the JCC is not possible until the relative transport of waters from the JCC and the rest of the North Sea into the Kattegat has been determined.
