Abstract : On the basis of observations conducted by various organizations of U S S R and Rumania the distribution of turbidity, transparency and color of water in the Danube estuary area was determined. It appears that the degree of turbidity depends upon the nearness to the distributaries of Danube delta, the force and direction of wind, the quantity of discharged water per unit time and the velocity and mass of fluvial currents. The numerical values of transparency dependent upon these factors are briefly summarized, compared and charted, so as to present the spatial pattern of the distribution of transparency and color of water, as well as their variations with time and climatic conditions.
