Abstract:Groundwater formation conditions in the upper hydrodynamic zone of the northern coast of European Russia are considered. This groundwater discharges directly into the Barents and White seas. The values of submarine discharge from European Russia into arctic seas, bypassing river network, are estimated. Estimates of subsurface dissolved-solids discharge are given. Specific and integral characteristics of submarine discharge are analyzed. The major regularities in the formation and distribution of submarine discharge into seas of the Arctic Ocean are described.
