Break-up in the Caspian Sea

Ice Cover has started breaking up intensively in the Caspian. Strong winds anticipated in the next few days will lead to destruction of majority of ice cover. However, whatever is left in the region will be melting away with warmer air temperature and increasing influx of solar radiation.

You can observe performance of our thermal model used to assess and predict ice thickness in the region that encounters for these factors. Regularly updated ice dashboard summarising daily change of key ice cover parameters (volume, coverage and thickness) is available on our website.
