The temporal changes in the level of the Black Sea were studied using statistical analysis of Black Sea surface level anomalies measurements. Off-season variations of Black Sea level were shown. Three maxima of the sea level temporal curve were found in 2010, 2013 and 2016. Correlation analysis was performed as well as a linear regression graph was plotted for average sea level anomalies and average sea surface temperature over the observation period (2008–2017). The spatial correlation between SLA and SST was found earlier. Using spatio-temporal data, we study the temporal correlation here. A weak temporal correlation is revealed.
