Geologic history of the Laptev sea shelf during Cenozoic is not well studied. Available data allow to assume that during the most part of Cretaceous and Paleocene this territory was subjected to planation and formation of the crust of weathering. Such conditions existed during Miocene and Early Pliocene [Paleogeographic..., 1991]. With the beginning of a transgression of 4 m.y. ago the northern part of the Laptev Sea shelf was covered by sea, and on the rest part of the Laptev Sea a lacustrine and alluvial sediment were deposited (Figure 8). The most prominent tectonic movements with inherited development of uplift and subsidence zones occurred during time span of 3.3-2 m.y. in the central part of the shelf, when the recent structure of the Laptev Sea has been formed. The key neotectonic element on the shelf is the Omoloy graben as a link structure with the Gakkel Ridge which has a length of 400 km and a width from 20 km in the north and 35 km in the south.

This demo is a sample of presentation of big images (maps), i.e. when sizes of image essentially exceeds the size of screen in pixels. Document which appears when you click on Figure 8 icon, is the sensitive map which sends visitor to one of selected maps which are scalled initially to the size of screen. To view the map in detail visitor can call for 100% zooming and then scroll big image in the window, or move mouse pointer to the area of interest, click on and receive detailed image cropped around selected point. The cropped image is produced using server-side inclusions (SSI) and requests some additional software on machine where WWW server resides (in our case it is ImageMagic software).
