Abstract : Analysis of dynamic charts constructed on the basis of independent data of long-term mean temperature and salinity values for different months shows that, despite the assumed conception, no common cyclonic circulation exists in the Bering Sea surface layer. By the north-western current system, the Sea is divided into two parts essentially different in the water transport: deep-water south-western part with well defined cyclonic circulation and shallow-water north--eastern part with predominating clockwise currents. At great depths of Western as well as Central basins of the Sea, the cyclonic character of water motions prevails. (Author)
