Recent a long time have obvious a degradation of the environmental caliber in semi-enclosed seas, that are quite delicate to inhabitants pressures as a result of their clearly low flushing charges relating to their geometry. The North Sea, Baltic Sea and the Black Sea are among the main heavily threatened seas within the Euro-Asian area. each one semi-enclosed sea has a unique development of flow, shipping, blending, linked to the actual geometry, topography, boundary methods, inside stratification, atmospheric forcing, ice fonnation, straits / sill controls, and the categorical inputs of freshwater, nutrition and toxins. The workshop investigated the exact actual and ecological features of the 3 seas in a comparative demeanour, to be able to establish the kinds of using forces and dynamic controls working on productiveness, nutrient biking, actual shipping and combining mechanisms. A comparative research of those controlling mechanisms could let us higher comprehend surroundings sensitivity in those varied environments. The workshop shows highlighted the complexity of the semi-enclosed seas on the topic of the interplay among the actual, chemical and organic fields, and adjustments in time and house scales in all the structures. additional, a powerful weather sign exists in those structures, happen within the interannual, interdecadal and long term variability. a part of the variety appears to be like hooked up with historical past climatic variability.

About 60 % of total annual discharge of Danube occur in March to July. The form of seasonal variability is close to the annual harmonic with maximum in May and a minimum in October. However, the relative amplitude of the annual harmonic of Danube discharge is not so large as Dnieper. There are two principal origins of Danube water, as opposed to the other rivers analysed. Alpine snow-melt is responsible for the May discharge maximum of Danube. Relatively strong summer rainfall in Central Europe (Climate of Europe, 1995) is responsible for strong flood discharges of Danube during that time.

These observations were used also for the calculation of montllly SST. Besides, the monthly position of Asores High an Iceland Low and SLP magnitudes within them after 1891 were received from Monthly Data Sets, 1988 ... and Monthly Synoptic Bulletins, 1986/1991. Hydrographic parameters (temperature and salinity) were monthly averaged over regular mesh 40 by 40 miles. If the number of observations was more than four within each box for a given month, the intramonth variance was calculated . This variance is due to day-to-day and relatively small scale variability (typical space scales are less than 40 miles).
