Definition: A further stage of ice compacting after its concentration reaches 9-10/10. During compression of ice, rafting and hummocking usually occur and stuffed ice may be formed within the coastal zone. Within the zones where big and giant floes are predominant, compression of ice may start if total concentration is equal 7-8/10.  Bushuyev
