From September 1985 to August 1987, the horizontal and vertical variations of dissolved oxygen were studied at the Gulf of Yeongil on the coast of the East Sea of Korea. The concentration of values of dissolved oxygen and rate of oxygen saturation ranged from 6.0 to 8.0ml.l-1 and 80 to 120%, respectively. The dissolved oxygen oscillated between 0 and 13.17mlr1 with an average value of 5.55ml.l-1. The rate of oxygen saturation fluctuated from 0 to 233.8%. The characteristics of the water mass defined by the dissolved oxygen and the rate of saturation varied with the different environments. The annual variations of the these two factors for northern coast area were 6.17mlr 1 and 106.4%, those of central water area 6.18mlr1 and 104.6%, those of the old port coast area 2.33mlr1 and 38.1%, those of the POSCO coast area 6.10ml.l- 1 and 102.8%, and those of the estuary of Hyungsan 6.72mJ.l-1 and 118.5%, respectively.
