Malyi Chaunskiy Strait
Malyi Chaunskiy Strait (former Sabadeisky) – located on the west side of Ayon Island, separating it from the Asian continent in the east of the East Siberian Sea, Chukotka, Russia. This is a shallow water area with extensive silty tidal coastlines and sandspits. In the northern part of the strait, marine brown algae (Laminaria sp.) are met in storm drains. A part of the peninsula adjacent to the strait is covered with a patterned lace of thermokarst lakes and brackish marshes in halophytic interlacustrine areas.
