The border of the open sea in accordance with hydro-chemical data in summer-autumn 2006



As it is known [1], the variability of ocean’s natural objects is concentrated in relatively small boundary zones of transforming of
matter and energy. These active surfaces, where the leap in process’s features take place, are also known as barrier zones. These zones, which were thoroughly investigated for oceans and open seas, are not examined well enough for internal seas. More over, the very definition of the «barrier zones» which is close to the definition of «water mass» in classic hydrology doesn’t always indicate their existence at all. This paper presents an attempt of applying formal methods for zoning and of comparing the results with classic barrier zone definitions.
