The e-book has been released in 2002, and is accordingly seriously in accordance with the result of the third review document of 2001 through the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on weather Change), who upgraded their temperature upward push forecasts to eight levels Celcius through the top of the century.

The regional circulation was found to consist of a meandering rim current conforming mainly on the topographic slope and a series of anticyclonic eddies attached to the shelf break. The eddies, observed in the period of the surveys, seem to be quasi-permanent features and are controlled by the topography and also modified by the barotropic-baroclinic instability of the flow. Further details and structural variability of the circulation were inferred by satellite imagery. The distribution of the CIL waters was found to follow the regional circulation.
The anticyclonic eddy found earlier in the easternmost part of the sea has, in this survey, an elongated shape in the offshore direction from the coast. The April 1987 cruise covered only the Anatolian coastal belt of 50 the western Black Sea. As compared to the April 1989 case, the circulation pattern exhibits a weaker rim flow, and pronounced spatial variability towards the interior of the basin (Figure 3c). The flow pattern indicates presence of a more pronounced meandering rim current and the Sakarya and Sinop anticyclonic eddies.
20 of about 150 C appears in the subhalocline waters. 5. 5 C. In contrast to the Marmara Sea, the Black Sea is continuously stratified in temperature and salinity. During the recent evolutionary history of the Black Sea basin, the dense, saline waters from the Mediterranean Sea have fed the deep waters through the lower layer flow of the Bosphorus. g. CIW); as a consequence, warm salty water underlies less saline but cold water in the Black Sea. The resulting stratification is gravitationally stable, but it favors double diffusive instabilities in the 'diffusive' regime.
