The Major Basins within the Pan-Arctic Drainage System

Discharge Graphic

The Russian pan-Arctic watershed, partitioned according to drainage regions for each coastal Sea. River discharge gauges (red dots) and a river discharge field (blue lines) calculated from the observed record are also included. The inset shows a preliminary simulation run of the Permafrost Water Balance Model for the Ob River basin covering the period 1960-1990.
