Basic Processes of Black Sea Biogeochemistry

Sergey K. Konovalov James W. MurrayGeorge W. Luther III
First Paragraph

Determining the basic processes governing the biogeochemical structure of the water column is a key challenge for today’s oceanographers. Knowledge of these basic processes for an aquatic system makes it possible to predict the consequences of climatic variations and anthropogenic intervention, and to numerically simulate the system’s structure and evolution.
