Presumable groundwater seepage influence on the upwelling events along the Hel Peninsula
Languages of publication
Low water salinity values were recorded during upwelling events along the marine side of the Hel Peninsula. The most probable explanation of those unexpected results is a submarine groundwater discharge in this region. The hydrogeological structure of the area and some previous studies on salinity anomalies observed in the Gulf of Gdansk seem to confirm the hypothesis. This report encourages further complex research aimed at studying this phenomenon.
