“Today, the movement of individual ice floes is noted in the Gorodetsky Shar channel. The head of the ice drift develops below the village of Yushino. In the section from Kamenka to Oskolkovo, there is a drop in water levels to 65 cm per day, at other posts, the intensity of water level growth in the NAO was up to 60 cm per day.
