Abstract

Organic matter and nutrient concentrations in sediments are studied in three areas representing a depth profile from shallow to deep water in the transition zone between the Kattegat and the Baltic proper. The data suggest that the sediments have a preferential loss of their N content compared to the C content during resuspension and transport from erosional bottoms to accumulation bottoms. This indicates that the C/N ratio may be used as an indicator of bottom type, provided that the sediments are sampled in the same season
