The study is analyzing the meteorological parameters, hydrodynamic conditions and coastal changes caused by extreme storm known as Berit, which travelled across the Baltic Sea from 27th to 29th of November in 2011. Wind speed on West Estonian islands reached to 19,7 m/s (gusts 29 m/s), 20,4 m/s on the northern coast (gusts 27 m/s) and 15 m/s (gusts 20 m/s) on the Russian Gulf of Finland coast. Sea level at Pärnu reached to 110 cm, 142 cm at Narva-Jõesuu and +190 cm near St Petersburg (outside… CONTINUE READING
