Neoeuxinian sea-lake appeared 25-30 ky ago and was the last isolated basin in the Black Sea region. It was characterized by very narrow shelf connected with the continental slope and rise. Due to subsequent the sea-level rise, a wide shelf was formed along the NW Black Sea where the basin coastline has been traced by thick sandy nearshore deposits at the depths of 87-88 m below pre-sent sea level. The changes affected the sedimentation in the shelf-continental slope transitional area. This work is aimed at reconstructing depositional environments of the region during Late Pleistocene and Holocene.
