June 16: Igarka’s paradoxal charms!

Today we further discovered local watersheds.
We went sampling the Fox creek and Gravika river (samples for sediment’s transport and sonde’s measurements).
These  relatively small rivers are two Yeniseï tributaries with different regimes.
Fox creek has generally high level of suspended matter and turbidity whereas the Gravika has most of the time clear water.
The warm season is now well engaged with green landscapes and beautiful flowers but also awful clouds of mosquitos!
