The transition zone is a zone of shallow water immediately adjacent to the coastline of offshore areas, where, due to the shallow depth of the sea (less than 10–15 m.) and marine geophysics are ruther complicated; at the same time, the useage of ground-based start-stop EM sounding is impossible because of the deep water (more than 2 m). In this paper, we will consider some technological aspects of start-stop measurements in the transit zone on the example of test work in the shallow waters of the Black Sea.
