Description 
Summary

There are results of marine forecast of the salinity field of the Black Sea for the Eastern part of the Black sea including Georgian water area. Forecast is calculated with use of the regional mathematical 3-D model of the Black Sea dynamics developed at M. Nodia Institute of Geophysics (Tbilisi/Georgia, authors: A. Kordzadze, D. Demetrashvili). The forecasting interval is following: 8.06.2010, 00:00 h - 11.06.2010, 00:00 h Calculated prognostic values of salinity are obtained in the points of three dimensional grid, which covers the eastern part of the Black Sea basin with 1km horizontal spacing. Calculated salinity fields are given on depths of 0, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 m at time moments 24, 48, 72 hrs after start of integration, also at the initial time moment t = 0.
