This study is part of the Soviet-Norwegian Oceanographic Programme (SNOP) on ice and water dynamics in the region between Svalbard and Frans Josef Land. The effects of the movements of water and ice on the ice regime are discussed. Due to the scarcity of data, numerical hydrodynamica] simulations are used. The tidal ice drift is visualized on satellite images as elliptically shaped traces in the ice fields formed by grounded icebergs. These traces are a result of the joint action of tides, wind and permanent currents.
