Abstract
    The present Atlas is a result of international co-operation of the scientists of the SouthernScientific Center and Murmansk Marine Biological Institute of the Russian Academy ofSciences (Russia) and the Ocean Climate Laboratory of the National Oceanographic Data Center(USA).The Atlas contains oceanographic data presented on CD-ROM and on internethttp://www.nodc.noaa.gov/OC5/AZOV2008/start.html. The data collected in the Sea of Azovand the Kerch Strait during 1891-2006 by the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Ministry ofFisheries, and the Hydro-Meteorological Service of Russia. It includes data distribution maps byyear and individual month as well as vertical sections of climatological monthly temperature andsalinity. A three-dimensional hydrodynamic model of the Sea of Azov was developed. Theaccuracy of the hydrodynamic model was assessed by comparing the model output with salinityclimatic fields calculated from measured salinity data. Interannual air temperature variations forthe Sea of Azov and surrounding areas, for the period of 1885-2006, are also reviewed forpotential climate change trends. Electronic copies of rare books and articles on the history of theSea of Azov exploration and climate studies are included, as well as photographs depicting thenatural history of the region.
