Abstract

We the discuss the results of modelling wind currents in the system of Sevastopol bays. Numerical calculations are carried out according to the model of Felzenbaum. It is shown that the decisive role in the formation of distinctive features of circulation of waters and the essentially three-dimenstional character of currents in this part of the sea is played by the bottom topography and the direction of winds. These distinctive features are demonstrated for the cases where the motion is induced by the northeast and northwest winds. In the Sevastopol bays, we discovered the existence of jet longshore currents, vortex character of integral circulation, and intense processes of upwelling and downwelling.
