Black Sea Fleet (BSF) hydrographic ship Donuzlav on May 15 returned to Sevastopol from a long-range cruise. Through a one-month long cruise, the ship has covered 4,000 nautical miles and passed the Black Sea, the Sea of Marmara, the Aegean Sea, the Ionian Sea, the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Ligurian Sea, and the Mediterranean Sea. The ship was representing Russia at the 18-th International Hydrographic Conference.

The crew and attached experts carried out oceanographic researches at sea. Hydrographers had completed detailed bottom contour survey off Caucasian coast, and anchorage points near France, Tunisia, and Italy.

Area survey at those points was performed in order to find out navigation hazards and correct nautical charts. Our scientists have not done such works at those regions for over 20 years. Hydrographers took bottom samples to define its consistency and mechanical makeup.

The ship had an anti-terror team on board consisting of BSF marines and maintaining security during the cruise.
