Abstract : The study is made of the extreme sea-ice edge in the Far East seas during the winter months when the ice-area in the sea reaches its maximum. The fact was elicited, that the winter extreme limit of sea ice has a good connection with the configuration of the continental slope. The calculations of the critical convection depths disclosed the influence of North Pacific in compressibility of sea water at this depth. It may be asserted that the winter extreme limit of sea ice coincides with the configuration of the slope because there is a sharp increase of the critical depth of the thermal convection in this area. The schematic maps of the ice edge in winter and the critical depth of thermal convection in summer are given in this paper. (Author)
