The one-dimensional thermodynamic model adapted to the physiographic conditions of the Kerch Strait was used to study the seasonal evolution of sea ice thickness in the Kerch and Kamysh-Burun bays in the winter of 2007/2008. The dependence of the regional variability of ice thickness on hydrometeorological conditions is analyzed.
