Abstract—The peculiarities of the distributional patterns of the water temperature, salinity, current velocities,
particulate matter concentration, bottom contour, and zooplankton abundance were studied in relation to the
marine–riverine interactions and tide/ebb phases for coast lines of different configurations in the White Sea dur-
ing the cruises of the R/V Ekolog (August of 2006 and 2007). A significant difference in the manifestation of
the combined effect of the marine and riverine impacts (the estuarine concave relief) and only the marine impact
(the open-sea straight-line portion) was observed, which results in both variations in the sea water level and the
distributional patterns of the suspended matter and the zooplankton.
