Abstract:Numerical modeling with the help of an oceanic model developed in the Bergen University and with mean annual data was used to carry out monthly calculations of water circulation fields in Tatar Strait, to calculate the vertical velocities and horizontal transfer rates between three areas identified within the strait and on its external boundaries. Analysis of calculation results revealed new features in water circulation in the strait (in particular, in winter) and made it possible, for the first time, to jointly evaluate water exchange components on the external boundaries and within the strait.
