  • Case study area description and end users
    The Tyligulskyi Lagoon (its local name is Tyligulskyi Liman) is located at the north-western part of Black Sea coast between the Cape of Adzhiiask and Odessa Bay. It is separated from the sea by wide sandy isthmus with 6.6 km length and 0.2–4.1 km width. An artificial canal with 15–25 m width and 2 m deep joins the lagoon and the sea. However the canal functions occasionally because it is intensively filled with sand from the sea.
