The eireulation system of the Barents Sea is described. Warm water flows into the sea from west and is gradually transformed into Artic waters flowing out from the sea, partly as surface currents, partly as dense bottom water. The elimatic eonditions of the Barents Sea are determined both by effects from variation in the inflow and by processes taking place in the sea itself. The large variations observed in temperature and salinity from standard sections through the inflowing watermasses are examined and possible explanations are discussed.
