Hydrographical measurements to quantify long-term changes in fjords and coastal waters. We find a profound change in the vertical distribution of water masses, with Atlantic water shoaling >60 m and Polar Water thinning >50 m since early 2000’s. Atlantic water is now 1°C warmer and the salinity of surface waters and Polar Water are 1.8 and 0.68 lower.
