Based on 90 major Baltic inflows identified between 1891 and 1976, the volumes of water penetrating before and during these inflow events are calculated. Mean salinity, temperature, density, and oxygen concentration of the water masses flowing in during each inflow are analysed. First order estimations of the duration of the transport and velocity of saline deep water are given for an area as far east as the Bornholm Basin.
