   The history of studying of exogenous geological processes in coastal zone from cape Lukull to cape Konstantinovsky is considered. Conditions of development and intensity of manifestation of coastal processes are characterized. The problems connected with engineering protection and study of coast of Sevastopol are revealed, prime steps for their decision are offered.

Кeywords: erosion, landslips, landslides, suffusion, Northern part of Sevastopol, coastal protection structures, monitoring of coastal processes.
