Ukraine and Russia - April 28th, 2010

Taganrog Bay or Taganrog Gulf is the northeastern arm of the Sea of Azov. At its northeast end is the mouth of the Don River. It has a length of about 140 km, is 31km wide at the mouth, and has a median depth of about 5 m.

The surrounding land belongs to Ukraine (upper left quadrant) and Russia (remainder of image). The bay generally freezes from December to May; however in this image taken in late April, it is completely clear of ice and its waters appear tinged green with sediments.

Its mouth is marked by the Dolgaya Spit on the south and the Belosaray Spit (Belosarayskaya Spit) on the north. It abounds in sandy spits that partly enclose shallow bays. The Rivers Don, Kalmius, Mius and Yeya fall into the Taganrog Bay.

Taganrog Bay or Taganrog Gulf  is the northeastern arm of the Sea of Azov. At its northeast end is the mouth of the Don River. The bay is about 140 km long and 31 km wide at its mouth, with a median depth of about 5 m.

Its mouth is marked by the Dolgaya Spit to the south and the Belosaray Spit (Belosarayskaya Spit) to the north. It abounds in sandy spits that partly enclose shallow bays. The bay also contains the Sandy Isles.

It is generally frozen from December to May, although here it has already thawed completely. It is fed by the Don, Kalmius, Mius and Yeya Rivers.

Here, the waters of the bay appear greenish in color due to an algal bloom. Much of the Sea of Azov is characterized by intensive and rather long-term blooming periods. The tolerance of algae to salinity changes precisely defines the boundaries of their distribution in the sea and the Bay of Taganrog.
