  • The Black Sea’s cold intermediate water mass’s depth varies depending on its distance from the shore.
  • In the new study, Stanev and his colleagues charted the evolution of the Black Sea’s cold intermediate water mass for 14 years, comparing its progression with the region’s climate trends.
  • Continuing to study the Black Sea’s cold intermediate layer and its fluctuations will indicate whether climate change is behind the layer’s gradual disappearance.
