By using the archival data of routine hydrometeorological and satellite observations, we perform the analysis of the general regularities of manifestations of upwelling in the anomalies of the surface temperature in the northwest part of the Black Sea at the end of the summer season. We describe the structure of coastal upwelling according to the data of a hydrological survey carried out in the Kalamitskii Bay in September 2007 characterized by the extremely intense anomalies of sea surface temperature. By using the data of reanalysis on the heat fluxes and the wind field, we analyze the cause-effect relations responsible for the evolution of this upwelling.
