Eva Island in the Russian Arctic
Eva Island or Eva-Liv Island one of three islands in the Belaya Zemlya subgroup, part of the main Franz Josef group in the Russian Arctic. The waters around the island are covered by cracking ice.
The heavily glacierized island is roughly rabbit-shaped, with a surface area of 288 km². The highest elevation is 381 m, appearing in this orthorectified image as a sharp point atop the rounded, icy surface of the rest of the island.
The peninula at the western end of Eva Island is sometimes called Liv Island, as the first cartographer had believed it to be a separate island. The limit of permanent ice crossing Belaya Zemlya often makes it difficult to distinguish between land and sea.
