The Sea of Azov: Sanitary-Biological Characterization

O. G. Mironov
Institute of the Biology of the Southern Seas National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Sevastopol, Ukraine

SINOPSIS

The data presented were obtained in 1992 and concern the contents of crude oil, petroleum products, and organic compounds of biogenic origin in the water and bottom sediments of the Sea of Azov. Annual input of oil and petrochemicals reaches a maximum of 100−180 metric tons and averages 24−35 t, so that its admissible concentration in the sea water is exceeded by a factor of 3−20. The total amount of petroleum products in bottom sediments is about 500 thousand tons. Microflora and composition of the meio- and mesobenthos (species diversity and abundance) may serve as indicators of oil pollution.
