Abstract
Winter weather conditions in the Eastern Black Sea are characterized by fast changes affecting deeply on the territory of the Krasnodar Region of Russia and the coastal water area of the Black Sea. Offshore blowing local winds in the east of the Black Sea are often strongly variable in space and time due to the mountainous coastline. In particular, near the Russian city of Novorossiysk the winds can be quite strong (above 15 m/s), in which case they are boras. In the beginning of 2012 the most extreme weather conditions were observed on January 25-29 and February 6-9 in Novorossiysk and its neighborhoods during anomalously strong bora events. Acquired remote sensing (SAR and optical) imagery allowed to study these events. Useful information on the near-surface conditions were derived from the SAR and optical images by using analysis of the surface manifestations and cloud signatures associated with bora.
