The frigidly concentrated seawater and the evolution of Antarctic saline lakes were discussed. The concentration of the major ions of the saline lakes was accurately quantified. The current state of salt mineral equilibria in the brines was determined. The analysis showed that the major ion composition of saline lakes was modified accurately using a closed-basin brine evolution model based on seawater freezing.
