Abstract:

This research conducted in the eastern part of the Laptev Sea has once again confirmed the extremely complex nature of the subaquatic cryozenic stratum, which is expressed by the instability and dynamicity of this layer. The thermal state and structure of submarine permafrost, the thermodynamic aspects of the conditions for the formation, preservation and destruction of cryozenic formations on the shelf are discussed.
