According to the materials of scientific report at the meeting of the Presidium of NAS of Ukraine, September 11, 2019

State-of-the-art oceanographic issues related to stratified flows, such as gravity currents on the continental slope near the Antarctic Peninsula, where the Ukrainian Antarctic Station Vernadsky Research Base is located, generation and propagation of internal waves in the seas and oceans and their role in the mixing in the coastal zones are considered.
Keywords: stratified flows, internal waves, internal waves breaking over the shelf, gravity currents
