Overview 17.04.2014

The archipelagos in the northern Bay of Bothnia are covered with up to 70 cm thick fast ice. Farther out compact to very close, ridged, 15-50 cm thick ice occurs up to the line Malren Raahe; there is a narrow jammed brash barrier at the ice edge. Off the Swedish coast there is mostly open water.
