Abstract
    Redox measurements, in sediment cores from 17 stations in the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Bothnia, were carried out in order to compare the results from two separate pieces of measuring equipment. Linear regression analysis of the results from 107 parallel measurements gives a coefficient of correlation of 0 . 98. The measured redox values are grouped in three distinct clustes which may reflect the predominance of a 'strong' redox couple of couples within each of these redox ranges. The good correlation between the results indicates that redox measurements can be made with reasonable reproducibility.
