Description 
Summary

The research was carried out using standard methods of observations from research vessels. UkrSCES data base 'Sea Base' was created in 2002. In 2005 it was reorganized. The data base at the present time is functioning on the MS SQL Server 2000 platform. The average quantities of parameters are 279. They exist in 3 languages: English, Russian and Ukrainian. The structure of the new version of DB is presented in 22 tables on the following information: General meteorological information; Hydrology and hydrochemistry; Geology; Pollution in bottom sediments; Pollution in water; Metals in water; Metals in bottom sediments; Poly aromatics in water; Poly aromatics in bottom sediments; Chlorine organics in water; Chlorine organics in bottom sediments; Radioactive elements in water; Radioactive elements in bottom sediments; Macrozoobenthos; Phytoplankton; Photosynthetic pigments; Meyo benthos; Microphytobenthos; Macrophytobenthos; Methods. Each sea station where investigations are made is identified by a platform of name of the research program, time and spatial parameters. Each parameter, in turn, is identified by sample number, the environment of sampling (biota, water, sediments, air, etc.), the technique of measurement, the analytical equipment by means of which the analysis are made, personification characteristics and an attribute of quality (quality label).
