- The Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping, Joint Hydrographic Center (CCOM/JHC) at the University of New Hampshire provides an excellent Flash animation of the probable drainage outburst of Lake Komi following some glacial retreat: . For reference, the large moon-shaped island, top-center in the animation, is Novaya Zemlya, and the mountains to the right are the northernmost Urals.
