The Rokuanvaara formation



The Rokuanvaara formation is a large glaciofluvial esker northwest of Lake Oulujärvi (Vaala, Kainuu/Utajärvi, Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland). It includes a series of ancient shorelines (clearly visible in the image), as well as the largest dunes in the whole of Finland. Rokua National Park is located at the western half of the formation. Croplands and drained mires form a mosaic of rectangular areas on its southern side. In the northern part of the image, east of the river, large open aapa-mires display as a light gray and turquoise area.
