#Torneträsk or Torne träsk, Saami: Duortnosjávri Finnish and Meänkieli: Tornio or Torniojärvi, is a lake in Kiruna Municipality, #Lapland, #Norrbotten County in #Sweden, in the #Scandinavian mountain range. Träsk is the local word for lake (in Standard Swedish it means “#swamp”). It is the sixth largest lake in Sweden, with a total area of 330 square kilometres (130 square miles) and a length of 70 kilometres (43 miles). The lake drains to the south-east through Torne älv. South-west of the lake lie the Abisko National Park and the #UNESCO World Heritage Site #Laponian area.

Torneträsk originated from the remnant of a #glacier, which has given the lake its depth of 168 metres (551 feet), making it the second deepest lake in Sweden. It is usually ice-covered from December through June, with variations dependent on temperature variations.

In the background the mighty Mt. #Nuolja in the #moonlight, #NorthernSami #Njullá, is a mountain at #Torneträsk in #Kiruna municipality, west of #Abisko in northwestern Lapland. Nuolja is partly within #AbiskoNationalPark. The highest point is 1169 meters above sea level, while the nearby mountain peak #Slåttatjåkka measures 1191 meters. Photo taken from the #AbiskoDelta, after a windy storm and that´s why the ice bubbles are visible. Polished by the wind.

Nuolja, is also a #fieldresearch site that stretches across Mt.Njulla. With the mountain to the east, the village of Abisko to the south, and bordering Lake Torneträsk, this is a varied-habitat field site. Mountain birch forests are one of the main appeals of this research site.

#ClimateChange:
From 1920 to 2020, the tree line was raised by 230 meters due to the warmer climate.

Permafrost is common in the land around the lake albeit this low elevation permafrost is disappearing because of global warming and increased snowfall.

During the 1944 Operation Obviate of #WWII, British bombers seeking to destroy the German battleship Tirpiz had their rendezvous over Torneträsk Lake, in violation of Swedish neutrality!!!

Lenticular clouds (Latin: Lenticularis lentil-shaped, from lenticula lentil) are stationary clouds that form mostly in the troposphere, typically in parallel alignment to the wind direction. They are often comparable in appearance to a lens or saucer. Nacreous clouds that form in the lower stratosphere sometimes have lenticular shapes.

There are three main types of lenticular clouds: altocumulus standing lenticular (ACSL), stratocumulus standing lenticular (SCSL), and cirrocumulus standing lenticular (CCSL), varying in altitude above the ground. Because of their unique appearance, they have been suggested as an explanation for some unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings.
