Artist's Description

Russia’s Lena River, Lena River Delta and the Laptev Sea. At 4 400 kilometres long, the Lena River is one of the largest rivers in the world and is the longest in the Russian Federation. The river forms from a small mountain lake in southern Russia and flows north to the Laptev Sea in Northern Siberia.
The delta’s snow-covered tundra is frozen for approximately seven months a year before transforming into fertile wetlands. The tundra, which floods each spring, is an important area for nesting and migrating birds. Tundra wetlands are considered major contributors to the global carbon balance and are believed to be highly sensitive to climate change. By mid-June, the Lena river waters have usually thawed and are flowing to the Laptev Sea. The Lena splits into several small rivers before reaching the sea, and these rivers flow through a flat plain creating the Lena River Delta – a 32 000-square-kilometre haven for Arctic wildlife.
The largest Delta in the Arctic, the Lena River Delta is a complex landscape that has evolved over thousands of years. The whole delta area has been nominated as a UNESCO (the United Nations’ cultural agency) World Heritage Site.
