The paper is devoted to results of lidar technique application for ecological investigation in Russian coastal zone of the Black Sea in August of 1991. The shipboard lidar system for remote sensing of phytoplankton and organic admixtures (dissolved organic matter and oil-products) is described. The features of horizontal distributions of chlorophyll-a and organic matter in local and mesoscales are discussed. The relationship between these features and anthropogenic (industrial activity, pollutions) and natural influences (rivers, etc.) are analyzed.
