Current Trends in Atmospheric Circulation in the Azov–Black Sea Region

B. N. Panov and E. O. Spiridonova

The daily parameters characterizing the field of surface air pressure from 1960 to 2014 are used for assessing the current trends in atmospheric circulation over the Azov–Black Sea region. It was revealed that the decrease in mean air pressure and the weakening of northeastern air transport which was typical of the atmospheric circulation in this region in the previous period (1960–1990), occurred from 1991–1993 to 2005–2007. In recent 7–8 years, the ongoing air pressure drop is accompanied by the intensification of northeastern air transport.
