The results of the morphological analysis of the original bathymetry
data accompanying the 1:1,000,000 sheet series of the State Geological
Map of Russia were summarized in the geomorphologic map of the Laptev
and East Siberian seas' continental margin. The main morphological
elements and individual forms were revealed. The relief of the
continental slope has a rugged appearance due to an abundance of
underwater canyons, structural ridges and tectonic scarps. These
features are most characteristic of the continental slope off Severnaya
Zemlya Archipelago аnd the portion of the continental slope between the
Gakkel and Lomonosov ridges. The junction of the Lomonosov Ridge with
the continental margin shows a more gentle topography which is also
observed in the area of Starokadomsky trench - trough.
