Abstract:This volume includes papers devoted to the study and investigation of different aspects of arctic and antarctic climatology. The first four papers deal with glacial water reserve and discharge in the Arctic, Arctic cooling, large-scale sea level oscillations in the Northern Hemisphere and high relative humidity in the Arctic. Five papers are devoted to atmospheric studies in the polar regions. They cover such topics as cyclic oscillations, conjunction of certain centers of atmospheric action, characteristics of total radiation, change in wind speed and direction during geomagnetic disturbances and the relation of ionospheric troughs and plasmapause in the afternoon section. There are three papers on studies relating to the phase composition of ice, forecasting its flexural strength, and size determination of ice floes. Besides, there is a paper on the distribution of microscopic algae in Davis Sea fast ice. (Auth. mod.)
