Abstract - The Baltic Sea, one of the largest brackish-water bodies in
the world, comprises a number of sub-basins connected by shallow,
narrow straits and deep channels. The freshwater supply, combined with
water exchange with the North Sea, causes strong salinity
stratification in the deeper parts of the sea and maintains a salinity
decrease in the entrance area towards regions largely influenced by
rivers. Wind driven and baroclinic currents form sub-basin scale
circulation scheme. Observations reveal energetic coastal and
topographic waves, eddies, lenses, seiches, strong salinity fronts.
