Analysis of the basic classes of organic compounds dissolved in seawater and their behaviour in the estuaries of rivers and coastal zone of the sea
On the basis of the available literature data, we analyze basic classes of organic compounds dissolved in seawater and study the transformations of proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids produced in the process of photosynthesis in seawater and their behaviour in river water and estuaries of the Black Sea. We also discuss the causes and distinctive features of the processes of production and destruction in the Black Sea.
