About this book

This fascinating book features a systematic description of the knowledge accumulated on the physical oceanography, marine chemistry and pollution, marine biology and geology, meteorology and hydrology of the Black Sea.

It's based on a wealth of primary data collected by expeditions as well as archive data, it presents the principal characteristic features of the environmental conditions of the sea and their changes in the second half of the 20th century.

At present, the principal problems of the Black Sea are related to the estimation of the intensity of the chemical pollution of the sea and its impact upon the biota. Special attention is given to the socioeconomic, legal, and political issues in the Black Sea region.

Complete with online files and updates, it's full of information from a huge body of scientific literature that has thus far only been published in Russian editions.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "The book presents a systematisation and description of the knowledge accumulated today, based on numerous observational data, collected by the authors of the chapters during sea and shore expeditions ! . This book addresses the specialists working in various fields of physical oceanography, marine chemistry, pollution studies, and biology and studying a cascade of problems ! . It may also be useful to students and post-graduates specialising in oceanographic research, as many unique processes occur in this extremely interesting basin."
