USE OF SATELLITE DATA IN MAPPING NORTHERN CASPIAN ICE COVER
Author : Buharicin.P.I., E.Kh. Ayazbayev
The rapid development of space technology in the 1970s in Russia resulted in fundamentally new and promising methods for the study of the hydrological regime of seas and oceans, including the assessment of Sea ice processes status and dynamics. Launching specialized artificial satellites (AS) and creating the network of autonomous satellite information receiver stations (ASIRS) contributed to this. In 1975, such a receiver station was created on the basis of Astrakhan Zonal Hydrometeorological Observatory (AZHO). The first TV images of the Caspian Sea ice processes cover were received from NOAA satellite in winter 1976. They were used to verify the position of ice
