The problem of the current state of subaerial morphosculptures on the periglacial East Siberian Shelf is still debatable due to the lack of in situ data. Therefore, any new information contributes to the knowledge of the evolution of the Arctic environment. In view of this, a complex of interdisciplinary oceanological studies was carried out in the southeastern part of the Laptev Sea. Using a side-scan sonar, images of the bottom surface were made, which show the shape of low-center-polygonal relief of the part of the modern coastal lowland area in the coastal zone near the area under study. Possible factors controlling the state of this morphosculpture within the East Siberian Shelf area of interest are considered.
