Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Coastlines of the Black Sea
The length of the Ukrainian Black Sea coast between Danube delta and Kerch Strait is 1628 km. Abrasive cliffs with rates of abrasion from 0.1 to 4.7 m/y (average multi-year data) are common. Abrasive coasts constitute 29.9 % or 468 km of the total length. Quantitative data have been collected on abrasion relationship with coast geology, wave energy, drift volume, nearshore slope and cliff height. A regional model has been developed for each relationship.
