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 before final clearance end of last week.
