Krenkel Bay (Russian: Бухта Кренкеля, Bukhta Krenkelya),[2] is a bay in Severnaya Zemlya, Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia.[1]


This bay was named by the 1930–1932 expedition to the archipelago led by Georgy Ushakov and Nikolay Urvantsev after Soviet Arctic explorer and radio operator Ernst Krenkel (1895–1978).[3]


Krenkel Bay is a body of water in the northeastern area of Komsomolets Island, the northernmost island of Severnaya Zemlya.[4]

The bay is open to the southeast. It is regular in shape and has a width of about 25 km (16 mi). The edge of the massive Academy of Sciences Glacier runs all along the western shore, while the northern shoreline is bound by a stretch of unglaciated area.[1] Ozerny Island lies close to the northeastern headland of the bay.[5]
