The study of diatoms and benthic foraminifers from the southeastern shelf of the Laptev Sea shows that their most diverse and abundant recent assemblages populate the peripheral underwater part of the Lena River delta representing the marginal filter of the sea. This area is characterized by intense interaction between fresh waters of Siberian rivers and basin seawater, Atlantic one included. Local Late Holocene (~last 2300 years) environments reflect the main regional and global paleoclimatic changes, the Medieval Warm Period (~600-1100 years B.P.) and the Little Ice Age (~100-600 years B.P.) inclusive. In addition, composition and distribution of planktonic foraminifers implies strong influence of Atlantic water during the Holocene optimum ~5100-6200 years B.P.
