Etymology

The name of the town comes from the Evenk word for "grayling".[ citation needed ]

History

It was founded due to the development of the nearby coal basin[ citation needed ] and was granted town status in 1975. [1]

Administrative and municipal status

Within the framework of administrative divisions, Neryungri serves as the administrative center of Neryungrinsky District. [1] As an inhabited locality, Neryungri is classified as a town under republic jurisdiction. [1] As an administrative division, it is incorporated within Neryungrinsky District as the Town of Neryungri. [1] As a municipal division, the Town of Neryungri is incorporated within Neryungrinsky Municipal District as Neryungri Urban Settlement. [4]

Economy

The town is the center of a large coal field discovered about 1970. It is located on the Amur–Yakutsk Mainline and the Lena Highway, 202 kilometers (126 mi) by rail north of Tynda. Nearby, all in the coal basin, are Berkakit: 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) south; Serebryany Bor: 8 kilometers (5.0 mi) east with a thermal coal power plant; Chulman: 30 kilometers (19 mi) north, with the Chulman Airport; and a large open pit coal mine northwest across the Chulman River.

Climate

Neryungri has a subarctic climate (Köppen climate classification Dfc) with mild summers and severe winters. Precipitation is moderate, but is significantly higher in the summer than at other times of the year. The climate is extremely cold for the latitude in part due to the Siberian High bringing extremely cold polar air to the city in winters, whereas the relatively high elevation and proximity to the cold Sea of Okhotsk usually prevents the heat waves seen in lower areas of Sakha.
