Description 
Summary

HYDROBLACK 91 international cruise in the Black Sea accomplished 307 hydrographic stations with the ships from three Black Sea riparian countries. Two Ukrainian vessels (Professor Kolesnikov and Parshin), two Turkish ships (Bilim and Piri Reis), and one Bulgarian vessel (Akademik) took part, occupying stations quasi-synoptically over the entire Black Sea within a period of four weeks. Stations spacing was approximately 20 nm. IMS METU carried out 104 hydrographic stations in southern part of the Black Sea.
