Full-text available
Field observations have been used to analyze changes in chemical properties (distribution of nutrients and sulfide) of the Black Sea anoxic layer from 1960 to 1995. The results reveal notable changes (increase in the inventories of nutrient and sulfide) in the chemical structure of the anoxic zone, which has been considered for a long time as a con...
Article
New and published data on the distribution and speciation of manganese and iron in seawater are analyzed to identify and parameterize major biogeochemical processes of their cycling within the suboxic (∼15.6⩽σt⩽∼16.2) and anoxic layers (σt⩾∼16.2) of the Black Sea. A steady-state transport-reaction model is applied to reveal layering and parameteriz...
Article
Using new data for the concentrations and δ15N of the main nitrogen species of NO3−, NH4+, PON (particulate organic nitrogen) and N2 in the Black Sea, we studied the distributions of concentrations and δ15N using a coupled physical–biogeochemical model including known biogeochemical processes and nitrogen isotopic fractionation. In the deep anoxic...

Wet atmospheric depositions have been collected in a rural (Katsiveli) and urban (Sevastopol) location at the Crimean coast of the Black Sea from 2003 to 2008. Samples, 217 from Katsiveli and 228 from Sevastopol, have been analysed for inorganic fixed nitrogen (nitrate, nitrite, and ammonium). Data have revealed almost equal contributions of ammoni...

Information on the depth of the sulfide onset in the Black Sea has been analyzed for the period 1910–1995. Correlation between the depth of the sulfide onset and the density structure of the layer of the main pycnocline is significant for the entire period covered. Correlation coefficients (R) between the depth of the sulfide onset and the position...

Variability of ⁷Ве activity in the near-surface atmosphere of Sevastopol, Crimea, was recorded from August 2011 to December 2020. Monthly mean values of ⁷Be activity varied from 1.6 to 6.7 mBq m⁻³ around the average value of 3.9 ± 1.3 mBq m⁻³. Higher values of ⁷Be activity were typical of the period from May to August (4.8–5.0 mBq m⁻³), while lower...

Atmospheric depositions have been recently recognized as an important source of nutrients for off-shore marine systems, in line with the coastal input and physical exchange. The input of nutrients with atmospheric depositions can change their inventory and ratio in the euphotic zone, thus increase the rate of primary production and the type of pred...

Анализ полученных данных показал, что прибрежные воды Черного моря вблизи крупных индустриальных городов, таких как г. Севастополь, подвержены высокому антропогенному давлению. При этом атмосферные осадки играют существенную роль в поступлении биогенных элементов в прибрежные воды. Особенно явно это проявляется на небольших масштабах времени, когда...

Chapter
The Southern Ocean, being a major sink of CO2, has a crucial role in mediating the global climate. Moreover, this ocean plays an equally important role in the budget of oxygen in the World Ocean. It is one of two major areas where downwelling of cold and oxygen-saturated waters transports oxygen to the deepest layers of the ocean. Thus, the dynamic...

In 2016-2017, the yearly long measurements of the current velocities were carried out at 100 m depth below the thermocline and at 1700 m depth for the first time, which was about 100 m above the seabed using the mooring station in the deep central part of the Black Sea. The analysis of this new dataset allowed us to uncover the following. In the ne...

Full-text available
Appearance and spread of severe oxygen deficiency, “dead zones”, have become usual for coastal areas of the World Ocean. Consequences of these phenomena are always extremely negative. Redox conditions in bottom sediments and water greatly depend on oxygen, which is the key factor for benthic communities. This work is aimed to study biogeochemical p...

In 2016-2017, for the first time, nearly year-long measurements of the current velocities were carried out below the thermocline at a depth of 100 m and at a depth of 1700 m that was about 100 m above the seabed by using the mooring station in the deep central part of the Black Sea. Analysis of the new data set allowed us to uncover the followings....

Глобальные изменения биогеохимической структуры Мирового океана, наиболее проявляющиеся в региональном масштабе, вызванные ростом потока углерода в водные экосистемы в результате увеличения поступления из атмосферы, береговых источников, первично-продукционных и деструкционных процессов в морской среде, делают актуальными вопросы разделения влияния...

Full-text available
Global changes in the ocean biogeochemical structure, most revealed on a regional scale, caused by an increase in carbon flux to aquatic ecosystems as a result of an atmospheric emissions expansion, emission from coastal sinks, primary production and degradation processes in the marine environment. All these sources raise a question of division of...

Purpose. Global changes in the ocean biogeochemical structure are mostly pronounced on a regional scale. They are caused by the increased carbon flux to the aquatic ecosystems that is a result of its growing emission from the atmosphere, coastal sinks as well as and the primary production and degradation processes taking place in marine environment...

Continuous increase in CO2 inventory in the ocean results in dramatic changes in marine biogeochemistry, e.g. acidification. That is why temporal and spatial variabilities in atmospheric pCO2 and dissolved inorganic carbon, including CO2, pH and alkalinity in water, as well as organic and inorganic carbon in bottom sediments have to be studied toge...

It is shown that the coastal and deep-sea water TA is strongly influenced...
Article
We studied organic matter in the central Black Sea and its northeastern and northwestern shelf break within three weeks in November 2013 to test the hypothesis that in situ production could explain lateral and vertical variability in its composition and distribution. The wide spatial coverage over a short period of time achieved during this study r...

Coastal zone dynamics is especially interesting for interdisciplinary researchers. This is due to general retreat of the coast of the Western Crimea and the fast response in the beach ar-ea. This justifies the need for monitoring of morphodynamic processes in the coastal zone of Crimea with the aim of qualitative and quantitative assessments of mod...
