Hainbucher et al. (1986) gives the water mass transport and its standard deviation through selected sections in the North Sea. Regarding the net transport rates between the ICES boxes (Fig. 17), calculated by Lenhart (1990), 24% of the incoming Atlantic water masses through the northern boundaries reach the central North Sea (ICES Box 7B') north of the Dogger Bank, and only about 5% circulate south of it. The recirculation of water masses in the north of North Sea is clearly visible, looking at the net transport rates of the ICES Boxes 1 and 2.

For this period the wind field over the North Sea will be examined more closely. May and June 1986 (Figs. 9) are distinctly different from the wind fields of the 4-year mean. While the mean distribution of wind directions is quite uniform - only off the Scottish coast do southwest winds prevail more frequently (20%) - May 1986 is characterized by an almost complete lack of winds from the northwest over north to east.
