Abstract:The article deals with the results of the study of meso- and microvortices in the coastal regions of Antarctica according to meteorological satellite data. Vortices of one type present accumulations of drift sea ice of medium density drawn into the circulation by the sea current. Vortices of the second type are connected with the peculiarities and the orography of the glacier slope. These vortices present accumulations of snow and ice drawn into the circulation of the winds blowing from the continent. (Auth.)
