The policy of coastal zone development and management pursued by these states exerts an essential influence on the entire Black Sea. For the solution of the practical problems arising during economic development of the coast, frequently it is required to receive quickly the information on dynamics of coast, especially of the accumulative one. The data acquisition of the field instrumental observations requires the long expeditionary works and the time for the subsequent office treatment of results. The use of space pictures allows estimating dynamics of accumulative coastal forms of any scale and giving a complete picture of the area coast changes. The resorts Anapa (Russia) and Crimea (Ukraine) have been used as test areas. Keywords : Monitoring, coast line, coast retreat, satellite observations
