The Anapa bay bar is a valuable recreational and medical resource. Digital landscape and morphological mapping of its the North-Western part was created by digital aerial survey materials for monitoring its statement. The compiled maps show that in the Western part of region dune belt is degraded; the front dune hills were destroyed due to spreading the settlement of Veselovka buildings to the beach, and due to mass enactments carrying out at the bay bar of lake Solenoye. Here it is necessary to solve the problem of defense from waves flooding by constructing artificial hills. The middle part of the region, around the Bugaz lagoon, is used for unregulated extremal sports such as windsurfing and kiting, seasonal recreation in tent-camping and public events. Many short roads to the sea beach, orthogonal to the coast line, have turned into corridors of blowing and sea waves’ interaction with lagoon lowland destroying the dune belt. In the Eastern part of the region, at the Bugaz bay bar, the dune belt is conserved, but it changes under natural sea and wind processes action. In some places sea waves erode the windward front dune slope. Just everywhere sand accumulative trains are formed at the leeward slope of the front dune. It is shown that peculiarities of landscape morphological structure mast be taken in account due to taking measures for the bay bar protecting and preservation.
The work was carried out under the Russian Foundation of Basic Research (RFBR) grant 15-05-02654.
