Abstract

The structure and variability of the thermohaline and hydrochemical elements and the characteristics of the currents in the region of Argentine Islands are analyzed on the basis of oceanographic observations during the 7th Ukrainian Antarctic Expedition (February-March 2002). The results of the 7th Ukrainian Antarctic Expedition and the results of previous Ukrainian expeditions to Antarctica are compared. It is shown that in summer season the ice fields have an impact on the water structure and currents.
