Short summary
The streamflow of Arctic rivers is changing. We analyzed available data (22 gauges, 1936–2015) in the basins of the Yana and Indigirka rivers completely located within the continuous permafrost zone. The results show that the main factor of increasing low flows is the shift from snow to rain due to warming. Other factors related to the release of water from permafrost, glaciers, or aufeis may fractionally contribute to streamflow increase but cannot be quantified based on available data.
