This paper reports the data obtained on the anomalous train of soliton-like internal record-high waves in the Black Sea (h = ~16 m). Such a train was detected at a depth of ~30 m in October 2015 on the shelf near Gelendzhik with the use of an acoustic Doppler current profiler and a chain of thermistors and by processing of a space radar image obtained from the SENTINEL-1A satellite. The intensive atmospheric front revealed by meteorological data generated such internal waves, which are anomalous for the Black Sea.
