Short summary
This study provides observational evidence and dynamical reasoning for the sub-inertial waves in the Black Sea using a series of sea level data and Black Sea reanalysis products from the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service. These waves were generated by strong alongshore winds during autumn–winter and caused 10–20 cm of variability in sea level. They accelerated the coastal current and quickly transferred waters from west to east.
