We construct a simple model of seasonal variability of circulation in the Black Sea, which satisfactorily explains the data of altimetric satellite observations. The model is used to describe the nonstationary wind-induced currents in a round basin and study the trajectories of water particles in the surface layer of the sea. It is shown that, for nonstationary currents, these trajectories can be quite complicated. It is also assumed that Lagrangian mixing can be caused by the complex trajectories of water particles.
