Arctic coastal zones are characterized by diverse severe hydrometeorological phenomena including high wind speeds, stormy waves and surges. Abundance of islands and mountain ranges, and rugged coastline in the Kara Sea contribute to the formation of mesoscale atmospheric circulations that largely determine the pattern of coastal currents. The Arcti...
