The grounding of two cargo ships near the Romanian Black Sea coast. Meteorological conditions analysis
The aim of this study is to analyze the meteorological conditions at sea level and in the middle troposphere, during a violent storm in December 2009. The analysis is based on pressure and temperature maps, on the meteorological data recorded by the onshore and offshore weather stations and on the outputs of the Alaro simulation model. The grounding of a cargo vessel of 1725 dwt on the submersed beach south of Sulina channel the 16.12.2009 and of another cargo vessel of 3025 dwt, north of Sulina channel the 17.12.2009 occurred during this storm event.
