Paper Abstract

In connection with the growing interest in the development of the coast and the shelf of the Arctic Ocean, it seems relevant to study the frozen section of the Arctic coast by radio wave methods. The results of studying the geoelectric section of frozen soils and rocks of the Arctic coast in the vicinity of Tiksi by means of radio impedance and GPR sounding are presented. An experience of studying the frozen soils and rocks of northern Yakutia by means of a complex of radio physical methods of introscopy (radio wave diagnostics) of the underlying layered inhomogeneous medium (VLF-LF radio-impedance sounding and GPR) was summarized. The area of researches refers to the zone of permafrost. Series of long-term observations of total zenith tropospheric delay (ZTD) and its "wet" component (ZWD) for the permanent observation point TIXI are considered. A comparative analysis of direct measurements of the depth of thawing of cryolithozone soils, the results of ground-based radio wave soundings and GPS measurements has shown that it is possible in principle to determine the depth of thawing of cryolithozone soils using radio signals from the global navigation satellite system (GNSS).
