Abstract

The first results of a study of the phytoplankton and chemical composition of water of the entire Kolyma River are reported. The study revealed the spatial structure of the phytoplankton communities of river sections with various hydrologic conditions. The high diversity of the Kolyma River phytoplankton was established. It was acknowledged that the elemental composition and physical characteristics of the water are determined by environmental factors, mainly permafrost soils. Water quality was estimated by the physicochemical characteristics, sabrobic algae, and phytoplankton biomass of the water.
