Abstract

We study the space and time variations of the concentration of chlorophyll in the Black-Sea coastal zone (near Katsiveli) in summer 2001–2002. Typical vertical profiles of the pigments are presented. The relations between the concentration of chlorophyll and the optical parameters of seawater (including the Secchi depth, sea reflectance, effective wavelength of the upwelling radiation, and the vertical attenuation coefficient of light) are analyzed. The equations for the biological parameters of seawater and its optical characteristics are presented.
