Abstract:The article deals with the results of a study of meso- and microvortices in the coastal regions of Antarctica according to meteorological satellite data. Vortices of the second type are related to the peculiarities and orography of the glacier slope. These vortices present accumulations of snow and ice drawn in by winds blowing from the continent.
