Since 2009, the Special Design Bureau for Marine Research Automation Tools of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences has been carrying out continuous measurements of sea level fluctuations off the South Shores of Sakhalin Island. Initially, measurements were made at Cape Aniva and in the depths of Aniva Bay on the western and eastern coasts (near Novikovo and Kirillovo), and since 2011 the work is also being conducted in the area of Cape Svobodny.

SDB MRAT FEB RAS for the first time registered abnormally large waves in the Sea of Okhotsk, the so-called killer waves.

Measurements on Cape Svobodny

Below is a map showing the location of the experiments in the area of Cape Svobodny

Also on Cape Svobodny there is a camera, which in real time captures changes in the coastal zone in the area of field observations. Thus, when analyzing, there is the possibility of not only instrumental observation of waves, but also their visual evaluation.
