The work presents the results of quantitative assessment of heavy metals (HM) content in bottom sediments of the coastal zone near the Karadag nature Reserve. The data were obtained as a result of field studies in 2016-2018. Estimated СС and Cо coefficients and Zc were calculated. It was shown that arsenic concentration limits were exceeded everywhere in the samples. The nickel, lead, copper and zinc limits were found to have been exceeded in some locations. Ecological and geochemical assessment of water and bottom sediments quality in the section of Karadag water area has been made.
