Morphometric Parameters of Ice Hummocks and Stamukhas from the Data of Expeditionary Research in the Northwestern Part of the Caspian Sea

E. U. Mironov and V. S. Porubaev

The paper is based on the experimental data obtained by the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute during the expeditions carried out in 2001–2008 within the frameworks of the Ice Research Program of Lukoil Co. in the northwestern part of the Caspian Sea. The in situ data processing and their statistical analysis enabled to obtain new information on the geometry of ice formations and distribution of main morphometric parameters of ice hummocks and stamukhas. The regularities are revealed of distributions of morphometric characteristics and parameters of the internal structure of ice hummocks and stamukhas.
