Marine Physics


A thermodynamic model of sea snow-ice cover growth under the influence of heat flows on its upper and lower surfaces is presented. The growing is described with an extended region of phase transition (a two-phase region) with a linear temperature distribution. The temperature of the upper surface is calculated with the use of a heat-balance equation on the basis of determinable meteorological observation data. The comparison of the model results with freezing experimental data is performed.
