Another river seemed to flow from this vast country and empty into the Bering Sea near the old Russian town of St. Michael, located on the western coast of Alaska. The Russians called this the Kwikpak River. In , the Kwikpak and Youcon were found to be one and the same, and were renamed the Yukon River as we know it today.   The Yukon River is an important source of freshwater, sediments, and solutes to the Bering Sea [Lisitsyn, ]. The Yukon River is unique among the Arctic Great Rivers in that it runs east to west through a predominantly discontinuous permafrost watershed that encompasses nearly 30% of Alaska's land area (, km 2) [Brabets et al., Cited by:   Petrof says that at its mouth it discharges into the Bering Sea a greater volume of water than the Mississippi. Several large navigable rivers, notably the Koyukuk and Tanana, flow into the Yukon, but many of the smaller streams, running into the Bering Sea and the Arctic Ocean, are shallow, and available only for small craft, a circumstance.
