Abstract : The crystallization heat given off by the ice to the atmosphere and its effect on meteorological conditions in the Arctic is analyzed on the basis of observational data and theoretical computations. In connection with this, the interrelation of winter cooling and iciness is brought into discussion with a view to evaluating the prospects of forecasting ice conditions on the Northern Sea Route for the coming navigational season.
