We study bottom circulation in the Norwegian Sea in the region of nuclear submarine wreck. A numerical model (INMOM) with a high vertical and horizontal resolution in the bottom layers is applied for the estimates of bottom velocities and direction of currents as well as their stability. The model revealed that the currents in the bottom layer of the Norwegian Sea are not strong. The fluctuations of currents with periods of 5–6 days and 12 hours are several times greater than the mean currents in the region, which are of the order of 1 cm/s excluding the region of the Bear Island Trough.
