Szczecin Lagoon

Summary
Szczecin Lagoon (Zalew Szczeciński, Stettiner Haff), also known as Oder Lagoon (Oderhaff), and Pomeranian Lagoon (Pommersches Haff), is a lagoon in the Oder estuary, shared by Germany and Poland. It is separated from the Pomeranian Bay of the Baltic Sea by the islands of Usedom and Wolin. The lagoon is subdivided into the Kleines Haff (Mały Zalew, "small lagoon") in the West and the Wielki Zalew (Großes Haff, "great lagoon") in the East. An ambiguous historical German name was Frisches Haff, which later exclusively referred to the Vistula Lagoon. Geography From the South, the lagoon is fed by several arms of the Oder river and smaller rivers like Ziese, Peene, Zarow, Uecker, and Ina. In the North, the lagoon is connected to the Baltic Sea's Bay of Pomerania with the three straits Peenestrom, Świna and Dziwna, which divide the mainland and the islands of Usedom and Wolin. The lagoon covers an area of 687 km2, its natural depth is an average 3.8 metres, and 8.5 metre
