Abstract : The properties of the ice cover are dependent both on the properties of the ice and on the characteristics of the ice cover itself. Among the characteristics determining the ice cover, other than the form of the ice from which it consists, are its horizontal extent, thickness, temperature, strength, type of surface and intactness. These characteristics of the ice cover are determined by its origin. Existing classifications of sea ice inadequately emphasize the role of the principal factors determining the origin of the ice cover and make difficult their quantitative evaluation. In contrast to the existing classification, the author has proposed a classification of the ice cover on the basis of its origin. (Author)
