A number of significant hydrologicla and chemical parameters of the Black Sea shelf area have been identified and investigated: the inter-annual variability of the mean annual and seasonal (winter and summer) values of the air and seawater temperatures and salinity in the vicinity of Odessa; silicon and phosphate concentrations averaged over the north-western Black Sea shelf area (NWBS); discharges of the Danube and Dnieper rivers; mean surface and near-bottom oxygen concentrations in summer acquired through the analysis of the summarized data collected at three oceanographic stations occupied between Bolshoi Fontan and the Tendra isthmus from the early 1950s up to date. From these data, the variability of the areas subject to oxygen deficit in the near-bottom layer of the NWBS shelf during the summers of 1973–1994 has been assessed. Predominant oscillation periods and trends in the inter-annual variability of the studied parameters have been revealed and their relationship and climatic dependence has been demonstrated.
