Description 
Summary

In the frames of this study, field measurements of waves, currents and water quality in the regions of planned wind parks (shallow areas Apollo, Vinkov and Neupokojev) are carried out with the following aims: 1. To describe significant wave characteristics in case of different wind conditions and to estimate probability of their occurrence in different seasons and time periods 2. To describe regime of currents in the study area, incl. sediment transport schemes 3. To register vertical profiles of temperature, salinity, chlorophyll a fluorescence, turbidity and concentrations of optically active substances (suspended matter, chlorophyll a, yellow substances) in the study area.
