Abstract

In May 2007, the Marine Hydrophysical Institute of the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences carried out an oceanographic expedition in the northwest sector of the Black Sea. This expedition originates a series of surveys scheduled for this region. It was realized within the framework of national and international projects, such as Climate, Ecoshelf, Stable Ecosystem, SESAM, ECOOP, and Oceanography. We present the data on the works carried out in this expedition and perform a brief analysis of the process of subduction of waters on the northwest shelf. It is shown that, despite the abnormally warm preceding autumn–winter period, the wellpronounced subduction of waters formed in the process of autumn–winter cooling was still observed over the drop of depth along the isopycnic surfaces σt = 14.0 and σt = 14.5–14.6 in May 2007. New data on the intensity of vertical turbulent exchange over the continental slope in the northwest part of the Black Sea are obtained.
