2021-2022 Ice Season Wrap-up

2021-2022 has been another (third during the last 10 years) extremely mild season in the recent history of the Caspian. Majority of ice cover was gone after the first week of March. However, winter has tried to keep its grip on the region with recurring ice formation along the northern coast during two cold snaps…

Start of 2021-2022 winter season

New winter season has started. New ice has appeared along the Northeastern shore with cold spell on November 17th. However ice will last only for several days and melt with warmer weather in the second part of November.

Ice ride-up blocks the road: view from space.

Comparison of clear Landsat-8 image from 19th of April with partly cloudy Sentinel-2 image from 18th showed a shift to the South of the ice sheet in the lake Bozshakol (Kostanay Region) for about 350 m in the North and around 200 m. in the South, where it encroached into the road M-36 which resulted…

End of 2020-2021 Ice Season

Open Water conditions were declared in the Caspian Sea on the 2nd of April. There are still several eroding stamukhi remaining along the northern coast which will melt in about a week under wave action with persistently positive air temperature. This ice season has lasted for 137 days which makes it one of the longest…

Deteriorating ice conditions in the Caspian Sea

High resolution Sentinel-2 image on the 16th of March shows that ice conditions in the North Caspian Sea are deteriorating. Multiple cracks, leads and mobile floes are observed in previously stable ice cover in Prorva, Peshnoi and Kashagan East areas. Kalamkas and Kashagan Highway areas are entirely in mobile ice conditions. Negative air temperatures which…

Winter ice season continues into 2021

Rare coincidence of cloud free weather in the beginning of January 2021 and simultaneous bypass of Sentinel-2 and Landsat-8 satellites over North Caspian Sea allowed us to make high resolution image of entire area (New Year’s present!). Ice remains stable along the northern and eastern shores. Recent winds has caused ice drift to south-east across…

Shift of ice in Kashagan

Recent easterly winds have shifted ice sheet opening lead of about 500m in width south-west from Kashagan East structures. The stabilising effect of artificial islands is demonstrated with recent cloudless Sentinel-2 image. Ice drift has created 300m long ice wedge in front of small structure on the left-hand side of the image. We continue to…
