East Siberian Sea


October 18, 2021

The Eastern Siberian Sea (Russian: Восточно-Сибирское море, Vostochno-Sibirskoye more) is a sea area in the Arctic Ocean. It is bordered on the west by the islands of New Siberia and on the east by the island of Wrangel. Adjacent sea areas are the Laptev Sea in the west and the Chukchi Sea in the east. It is connected to the Laptev Sea by three straits, to the Chukchi Sea by one strait (Long Strait). The sea area covers about 936,000 kilometers. The maximum depth of the sea is 155 meters, but in the western and central parts it can be only 9-20 meters. The sea is frozen for most of the year. The Russians sailed at sea as early as the 17th century. In 1648, Semyon Dežnjov sailed the coast from Kolym to the Anadyr River and the Bering Strait. The most important port city is Pevek. Sources
