Specificity of Romanian Black Sea Coast Changes Under Climate and Human Impact
The Black Sea and its coastal lakes are well-known from ancient times as “unicum hidrobiologicum” due to its specific features having impact on coastal area. Romanian coast is different than other areas because of being under the Danube freshwater and load influence. A variety of valuable natural resources are concentrated along the Romanian Black Sea Coastal Zone making the coast an attractive living, working and recreational environment with substantial economic and ecological value. This extended abstract outlines major points of the presentation at the NATO Advanced Research Workshop in Odessa (August 2008).
