The greatest length of the Black sea from North to South — 580 km and a maximum depth of 2210 m, the average — 1240 m. the salinity of the water is approximately 18 ppm. The depth increases pretty quickly. Over a sloping beach near Evpatoria, Feodosia. On the South coast, in mountain areas, the depth increases more rapidly: a few meters from the shore you have to swim (or, in the alternative, to swim along the shore). Be careful, even at a short distance from the shore can be strong currents to deal with which is not prepared person is quite difficult. But mostly this does not apply to places of mass bathing (if not to swim too far). Waters of the Black sea, as a rule, not susceptible to freezing. The average sea temperature in winter ranges from +6 to +8 degrees, in summer — from +22 to +24 degrees (can warm up to 26 degrees in a particularly hot summer). However, it is worth noting that the Black sea could throw a “surprise”: one day deep cold currents cool the coastal waters up to 12 degrees, even Continue reading
I think, in the Black sea swam many of our readers, and more — just heard about it. Indeed, the Black sea is one of the most interesting (and beautiful) seas in the world, including their historical significance.
1. In the Black sea is a very interesting distribution of currents. Two major currents, and that’s a huge cycles with a wavelength of about 400 kilometers. In honor of the scientist who discovered these currents, called them “Glasses of the Knipovich”.
In addition, in the Black sea inhabited only the upper layer of the water column. All because at the bottom of the sea huge amounts of hydrogen sulfide, rising and middle layers.
Life occurs to a depth of about 150-200 meters, and then, as has already been mentioned — hydrogen sulfide. It reacts with iron, attached to the anchors ancient mariners black. Maybe that’s why the Black sea got its name. Continue reading
harks are one of the most dangerous species of fish. They can kill a person in minutes, let alone a defenseless next to the giant fish. They are as bloodthirsty as a piranha, if you count all the teeth, it will more than three hundred. Agree, these teeth can bite through anything. Despite the fact that they are dangerous to humans there is little risk so as to shore they swim rarely, but there have been occasion when the shark was taking the lives of people near the shore. And although sharks are a threat to humans, they at the same time very useful, because the meat and fat shark is considered medical and they say the fat can cure cancer. Sharks feed mainly on fish (at one time they may eat a whole shoal).
For this and much more about sharks that you can watch online for free in this section of the website “films about sharks” which contains a list of the best movies about these fish. Despite the mortal danger that threatens people. sharks are caught, examined and they attract adventurers. Continue reading
