2 Modeling of turbulence as an important mechanism in shallow water basins Turbulence in shallow water basins plays important role in many processes of hydrodynamics such as: transport and mixing heat, salt, momentum and suspended and dissolved matter Turbulence in shallow water basins plays important role in many processes of hydrodynamics such as: transport and mixing heat, salt, momentum and suspended and dissolved matter Turbulent fluxes of material occur as a result of correlated, small-scale fluctuations in current velocity and the transport quantity itself Turbulent fluxes of material occur as a result of correlated, small-scale fluctuations in current velocity and the transport quantity itself

3 Shallow water basins Shallow water basins The Azov sea, South of Russia Length of water basin from the west to the east/ from the south to the north : 350 km / 250 km Maximum depth: 15 m Length of water basin from the west to the east/ from the south to the north : 19 km / 18 km Maximum depth: 9.2 m The Etang de Berre, South if France we are mainly interested by shallow water basins which can be roughly characterized by the condition: we are mainly interested by shallow water basins which can be roughly characterized by the condition: kh < 1 (2π h< λ), where -wave number of the wave, - height of the water column, - wave length. where k -wave number of the wave, h - height of the water column, λ - wave length. Average depth of the Azov sea is about 8 m, for Etang de Berre - 6 m, what correspond to wave length – 40m. According to satellite photos wave lengths are not more than this value.

4 Expeditions in the Lagoon Etang de Berre Three expeditions (20 Sept. 2006, 28 Sept and June 2008) was executed by REC of the South of Russia in cooperation with L3M/CNRS laboratory (the group of Prof. B. Roux) and SIBOJAI Environmental Service in the Etang de Berre and Etang de Bolmon.

After installation in the EDF-Channel hydroelectric- station, big volumes of fresh water are entering during last 50 years in the waters of the lagoon After installation in the EDF-Channel hydroelectric- station, big volumes of fresh water are entering during last 50 years in the waters of the lagoon This change affected ecology of the lagoon. This change affected ecology of the lagoon. There was a strong desalination during last 50 years and many aquatic plants disappeared near coastline There was a strong desalination during last 50 years and many aquatic plants disappeared near coastline
