Abstract : Calculation of turbulent heat exchange and heat loss by evaporation with empirical formulas is a rather long and work-consuming operation, requiring cumbersome computations, consisting of series of successive calculations. To facilitate such calculations it is expedient to use uncomplicated nomograms, which enable us to obtain directly from them the values of heat currents resulting from turbulent heat exchange and evaporation. Such nomograms were used in calculating the heat balance components of one of the Arctic seas for the navigation period. Plotting of such nomograms, connected with the graphic solution of an equation with three unknowns, is based on the method of application of the system of Cartesian coordinates. (Author)
