The conditions of formation of massive layers of ultra-fresh ice inside the marine saline sediment strata have been studied by geocryologists for several decades. Numerous hypotheses provided different interpretations of their origin and formation mechanisms. Based on the analysis of works of his predecessors, the author has depicted the natural conditions ensuring formation of massive layers of ultra-fresh ice and substantiated possibility of massive ice layers formation under specific climatic and permafrost conditions of different periods during the Middle and Late Neopleistocene.
