The Black Sea Coast Almanac on its way to stakeholders
Sensitivity Mapping of the Black Sea Coast – Joint Project with the Institute of Oceanology
TotalEnergies and its partners OMV and Repsol cooperated with the Institute of Oceanology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences to publish the Sensitivity Mapping and Analysis of the Bulgarian Black Sea Coastal Zone (Black Sea Coast Almanac).
Initially developed as part of the safety and environmental preparation process of the exploration activities offshore of Bulgaria, it was enriched by the scientists of the Institute of Oceanology, and we then decided to publish it and share it with the general public.
Contributing to the Knowledge about the Status of the Black Sea Coast
The Black Sea Coast Almanac contains valuable information on the environmental status of the Bulgarian coast from Durankulak to Rezovo. The high-quality publication comprising works from scientists, pictures and maps is the first one in 40 years to describe comprehensively the sensitive areas of the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, including its geology, flora and fauna, habitats and archaeological sites.
The book has been digitalized in 2018 and is accessible in English for everyone interested in the subject.
