Description 
Summary

For the estimation of the ecological condition of the Georgian Black Sea coastal zone the observations were conducted at 3 hydrological stations. Using the Ruthner’s bathometer sea water samples were taken at two depths – surface and 20 metres. The measurements were made within the EC Project PERSEUS. During monitoring the following parameters were measured: Chlorophyll, Electrical Conductivity, Ammonium, Nitrite, Nitrate, Dissolved Oxygen, Phosphate, pH, Salinity, Concentration of Silicon and SPM.
