Influence of Atmospheric Transport of Suspended PM10 Particles on the Optical Characteristics of the Surface Layer of the Black Sea


The event of the autumn transport of PM10 particles from the east to the Black Sea water basin and coastal zones is analyzed, as well as the optical characteristics of suspended particles from field and satellite data. The variations in optical characteristics of PM10 particles are shown to correlate with an increase in the fluorescence intensity of dissolved organic matter in the sea surface layer, measured near the northeastern coast of the Black Sea onboard RV Professor Vodyanitsky.
