At certain critical water levels it is possible for connections with surrounding water bodies to become established.
It is through the most active of these connective routes, the Turkish Straits, that the Black Sea joins the world ocean.
The Black Sea drains into the Mediterranean Sea, via the Aegean Sea and various straits, and is navigable to the Atlantic Ocean.
The Bosphorus Strait connects it to the Sea of Marmara, and the Strait of the Dardanelles connects that sea to the Aegean Sea region of the Mediterranean.
Currently the Black Sea water level is relatively high, thus water is being exchanged with the Mediterranean.He also thought that the Black Sea was called "inhospitable" before Greek colonization because it was difficult to navigate, and because its shores were inhabited by savage tribes.(7.3.6) The name was changed to "hospitable" after the Milesians had colonized the southern shoreline, the Pontus, making it part of Greek civilization.In Greater Bundahishn, a sacred Zoroastrian text written in Middle Persian the Black Sea is called Siyābun.Inflow from the Mediterranean has a higher salinity and density than the outflow, creating the classical estuarine circulation.This means that inflow of dense water from Mediterranean occurs at the bottom of the basin while outflow of fresher Black Sea surface-water into the Marmara Sea occurs near the surface.
