Description 
Summary

It is observed, that during the last 100 years the shore near the port Ochamchire suffered changes under the permanent erosional processes. The volume of alongshore sediment transport reaches 500 000 c.m. It is also estimated, that the load discharge of Rv. Mokva delivered to the investigating area reaches up to 9000 c.m. of sediment. It is recommended to replace the mouth of Mokva to the north from port facilities that will serve as a source for shore nourishment.
