ABSTRACT

This paper presents a research which consists in measuring potential energy which be obtained on the surface of water in motion and showing the phenomenon of “waves” monitoring in the Black Sea basin. For this were measured, processed and analyzed the amplitude of the waves, the frequency and the waves direction, more than 12 Mm shore, isobath of 50 m, to the coastal zone. There are described techniques and measurement accuracy durring one year. Also, are presented monitoring and processing data with graphycal interpretations, a comparative analysis between coastline data and off shore data and calculus of different waves parameters necessary to estimate the potential energy for medium values. The conclusions of experimental researches are: a) the existence of an energetic potential beyond expectations, much higher in the off shore area; b) the wave’s energetic potential is significant and the direction of marine currents generates the accelerated erosion of Romanian shoreline.

Keywords: wave, monitoring, parameter, potential, shoreline.
