Hydrophysical Processes


Sakhalinskii Shel’f information and analytical GIS based on observational data is used to simulate hydrological parameter values at standard horizons of stationary stations in the La Perouse Strait. The spatial and temporal distribution pattern for oceanographic parameters has been obtained. Water masses and water structures have been identified using classic T, S-analysis. Volumetric T, S-analysis of waters is used to evaluate the volumes, heat content, and salinity of the water masses chosen. For the first time, information for the winter season, which is the least investigated season and for which no generalizations whatsoever have been made until the present, has been obtained.
