From October 9 to 11, 2018, the Scientific Hydrophysical Center of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine together with the State Hydrography State Agency of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine held the next joint marine exploratory expedition "Black Sea - 2018".

This expedition is one of the additional activities on the development of marine sciences, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

During an expedition conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement on scientific and technical cooperation between the above-mentioned institutions, the waters of the north-western part of the Black Sea were explored using the large hydrographic boat "O. Solodunov "(the shipowner is a state institution" Derzhhydrography "). The total length of the expedition route is over 160 nautical miles.

Researchers:

  • performed hydroacoustic survey of sites with a total area of more than 70 km2 to determine the nature of the bottom terrain and the location of natural and artificial objects at the bottom of the sea;
  • received oceanographic data for the construction of appropriate geomorphological information models for various sections of the bottom of the northern water area of the Northwest Black Sea shelf, taking into account its structural and lithological characteristics;
  • discovered a number of sunken objects, identified their coordinates and sizes (only about 100 objects of different sizes);
  • made an oceanographic survey to determine the dynamic processes of the marine environment, and also measured their parameters in the most important coastal areas for navigation.

The results of expeditionary research will be used to create, ensure the functioning and filling of the hydrographic fragment of the bank of digital oceanographic data of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, as well as to ensure safe navigation conditions, to inform about possible changes in the marine environment, proofs of sea navigational charts, advisers and manuals for navigation on navigable sea routes.

In the process of expeditionary research, the methodology of organizing and conducting joint marine investigations on specialized vessels of the state institution "State Hydrography" of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine with the use of technical means of studying the marine environment of the said institution and the Scientific Hydrophysical Center of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (in connection with the future International Decade of Science On the Ocean for Sustainable Development (2021-2030), proclaimed on 5 December 2017 by the General Assembly resolution A / RES / 72/73 UN).

The expedition was carried out within the framework of the pilot project of the joint scientific and technical program of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine in the field of oceanographic and hydrographic study of the marine environment and inland waterways of Ukraine in order to increase the effectiveness of navigational and hydrographic safety of navigation for the period 2018-2022.
