The northwestern Black Sea shelf is an outstanding area for research. On one hand, its geomorphological features and geological structure make it possible to trace the course of transgressions, and on the other hand, the place is rich in paleoanthropologic data on the adjoining land surface (Yanko-Hombach, 2011). Detailed reconstructions of its geologic history allow an understanding of the environmental influence on human development, and the results of investigation may be used to search for ancient human settlements within the shelf area now covered by sea. In this work, we present data about the distribution of thicknesses in Holocene sediments (Drevne- and Novochernomorian time) and their connection with the bottom relief of the northwestern Black Sea shelf.
