Abstract

Following the two consecutive rainy winters, 1991-92 and 1992-93, the Dead Sea entered a meromictic phase which still persisted in the spring of 1995. The stability of the water column in the autumn of 1994 and in the winter of 1994-95 was found to be so weak that an overturn was considered imminent. The April 1995 profiles of several parameters, however, indicate that no overturn took place during the winter of 1994-95. Five independent criteria point to the same conclusion, that the meromictic regime which started in 1991 was still in effect in April 1995. -from Authors
