Description 
Summary

The hydrodynamical model of the system - the Black Sea land -atmosphere, take into account interaction between separate objects of the natural environment. It is necessary to note, that ocean atmosphere global numerical models because of rough spatial resolution, cannot describe regional features of the basic physical processes. For example, in such models Black and Caspian Seas do not exist, and the complex relief of Caucasus is practically ignored. Therefore, the interest for modeling of regional processes, including for the Black Sea region considerably grows. The analysis of the modern geophysical literature shows, that now regional coupled model the sea atmosphere based on full hydro thermodynamic equation systems of the ocean and atmosphere is not realized, though in some works separate aspects of small scale interaction between the sea and the atmosphere on the basis of simplified equations are considered.
