- Where Is The Sea of Azov?
The Sea of Azov is bordered by Ukraine in the northwest and by Russia in the southeast. It is connected to the Black Sea in the south via the Strait of Kerch, which has a width of about 4km at its narrowest point. The Kerch Strait is located between the Crimean Peninsulain the west and the Taman Peninsula in the east.
The Sea of Azov measures about 360 km long and has a maximum width of 180 km. The sea is regarded as one of the world’s shallowest seas with a maximum depth of only 14 m and an average depth of about 7 m. The two large rivers that drain into the Sea of Azov are the Don and Kuban rivers. Several smaller rivers also flow into the sea including the Berda, Mius, Yeya, Beysug, Molochna, Kalmius, Atmanai rivers. The deposits and inflow from these rivers are responsible for the low salinity of the Sea of the Azov. The seafloor is relatively flat due to the deposition of sand, silt, and shells by the rivers. These deposits have in turn led to an increase in the number of bays, lagoons, limans, and sandy spitsin the sea. A 113 km-long sandbar known as the Arabat Spit is situated in the western part of the Sea of Azov. The Sivash is a system of shallow water lagoons that covers an area of about 2,560 km in the northeastern part of the Crimea peninsula. The Arabat Spit separates the Sivash fro...
The Sea of Azov faces a continental climate that is characterized by hot and dry summers and relatively cold and short winters. During the autumn-winter season, the sea’s weather is influenced by the Siberian Anticyclonewhich brings the strong cold winds from Siberia. The average temperature in January varies between -1 and -5 °C which is brought down to about -30 °C by the cold Siberian winds. The average temperature ranges between 23 to 25 °C in July. The sea’s low salinity and shallowness favor the formation of ice every year during the winter season.
The shallow nature of the sea, the warm summer temperatures, and the influx of large quantities of organic nutrients account for the high biological productivity of the Sea of Azov. More than 300 invertebrates and 80 fish species are found in the waters of the sea. Several fish including the anchovy, bream, gray mullet, herring, minnow, sea-roach, and sardine are found here. Diatoms, blue-green algae, and zooplanktons like rotifers, cladocerans, and copepods are also found here. The sea’s benthic fauna includes different species of crustaceans, mollusks, and worms. The estuariesof the sea provide critical habitats for many important avian species like great cormorants, seagulls, pelicans, swans, wild geese, and herons. Numerous terrestrial mammals like martens, foxes, hares, wild boar, weasels, wild cats, and muskrats are also found. Different floral species like water lilies, reeds, and sedges are found in the marshes and estuaries that are situated along the shores of the Sea of A...

The Sea of Azov is a sea in Eastern Europe connected to the Black Sea by the narrow Strait of Kerch, and is sometimes regarded as a northern extension of the Black Sea. The sea is bounded in the northwest by Ukraine, in the southeast by Russia. The Don and Kuban are the major rivers that flow into it. There is a constant outflow of water from the Sea of Azov to the Black Sea. The Sea of Azov is the shallowest sea in the world, with the depth varying between 0.9 and 14 metres. The sea is largely
