Description 
Summary

Project is aiming to asses and impact of submarine mining of the black sands on the sea shore stability. Drilling, echosounding profiling, bottom sediment sampling were executed to get the real picture of lithodynamical conditions. Based on the results of research recommendations for secure amount of magnetite sands for withdrawal are given.
