Anabarskaya Guba

Reference work entry

Anabarskaya Guba – a south part of Anabar Bay. It is called after the river Anabar which flows right into the top of the bay in the Laptev Sea. The length is 24–25 km and the width is 6–7 km. The southern part has many shoals. In the south Anabarskaya Guba merges into Anabar Bay. It was first researched, at least partly, in 1735–1740 by the Lensko-Khatangskiy group of the Great Northern Expedition. Lieutenant E.I. Shileyko, a participant of the 1893–1894 expedition of the Academy of Sciences under the command of E.V. Toll, was the first to describe and map it in 1893.
