Kolyma Lowland

The Kolyma Lowland (Russian: Колымская низменность) is a lowland plain in the northwestern parts of Sakha Republic in the basin of the Alazeya, Bolshaya Chukoch'ya and lower reaches of the Kolyma rivers. It stretches for 750 km along the Kolyma River from East Siberian Sea to the Chersky Range, between the Alazeya and Yukagir plateaus. The average height of the Kolyma lowland is 100 m with occasional peaks up to 300 m high. The lowland is formed by fluvio-lacustrine loam soil about 120 m thick. The climate is subarctic.
