The systematic description of the knowledge accumulated on the
physical oceanography, marine chemistry and pollution, and marine
biology of the Caspian Sea forms the basis of this book. It
presents the principal characteristic features of the environmental
conditions of the sea and their changes in the second half of the
20th century. At present, the principal problems of the Caspian Sea
are related to the interannual sea level changes and their forecast
and to the estimation of the intensity of the chemical pollution of
the sea and its impact upon the biota. Special attention is paid to
socio-economic, legal, and political issues in the Caspian Sea
region. This publication is based on numerous observational data
collected by the authors of the chapters during sea expeditions, on
the archive data of several Russian oceanographic institutions, as
well as on the broad scientific literature mainly published in
Russian editions. This book is addressed to the specialists
concerned with research in various fields of physical oceanography,
marine chemistry, pollution studies, and biology; solving a wide
scope of problems from the regional climate to the mesoscale
processes; and using a variety of methods from remote sensing of
the seas to numerical and laboratory modeling.
