Description 
Summary

As a result of research, detailed taxonomic regional divisions of the shelf and submarine slope of the eastern part of the Black Sea based on the specific parameters have been made. These are: geotechnical-geomorphological and lithological-genetical features. Recommendations are given for presentation of marine environmental stability under the anthropogenic pressure.
