Abstract : In order to provide year-round navigation in the Gulf of Tartary, a thorough study of the dynamics of pack ice is necessary, as well as measurements of its physical characteristics. The observation program was designed to acquire data for the calculation of the relationships and coefficients necessary for operational information on current ice conditions and for developing ice forecasting methods.
