Abstract: In tideless Sea of Azov a level fluctuations have the different nature connected with seiche, anemo-baric oscillations, and also with storm run-up and run-down phenomena. The latter can have catastrophically effects by virtue of relative shallow water of the reservoir. Storm surges lead to flooding of extensive areas of coast. In the event of rundown, depths in ports and navigation canals decrease, a drying of bottom areas occurs. Construction of adequate physical model of the Sea of Azov storm surges using modern methods of mathematical modeling is the primary object of the work.
