Water exchange in lacustrine areas along the valley of the Lower Amur (as deduced from data of expedition-based investigations)

It is shown that at the time of a flood decline the areas along the valley of the Amur in its lower reaches, including the near-floodplain lakes impounded during a high flood, can ensure a total of about 15 % of the current value of the main river’s runoff. Under the conditions of the lowest-water level on the Amur as well as of the river backwater at the passage of the flood wave, the runoff volume (water flow rate) increases only slightly, not going beyond the limit of water flow rate measurement accuracy.
