ABSTRACT
In situ waves measurements, as well the experimental researches, encompasses complex approaches on the waves fields development, especially related to the marine and coastal waves propagation and interactions towards safety navigation, were become progressively important in the last decades.
The present works on the marine waves hydrodynamics, as a response processes of climatic changes, takes in to consideration the offshore operations and port management activities, and it is extended through several in situ and modeling approaches focused on the waves and currents regime, in the specific conditions of the western Black Sea Basin, afferent to the Romanian coast.
Certain results on the evolution of the main hydrodynamics indicators/parameters at medium and short term for the interest zone will be emphasized. The modeled vs. measured quantities of significant waves parameters, where analyzed on its seasonal/annual and multi-annual variance in relation with its importance on the maritime port management operations developments in the transitional area of the Romanian shore.

Keywords: marine environment, wave regime, wave’s parameters, extreme waves, statistical analysis, port operations.
