Description :
The different tundra landscapes of the Kolyma Lowland, northern Siberia are described, focusing on landscape typology, digital mapping and the calculation of areas occupied by different landscape complexes. The genesis, age and evolution of yedoma sediments and associated alas (thermokarst basins) topography are inferred from the calculation of lake-basin and lake-area changes over three decades. Connections between the present landscape and its evolution during the Holocene are described.
