Late Glacial and Holocene environmental history of the Oka Plateau, East Sayan Mountains (Siberia): a palaeolimnological study of several lakes
Keywords:vegetation and chemical weathering history, climate, Late Glacial-Holocene, Oka Plateau, Siberia
Palaeoenvironmental changes including vegetation, chemical weathering intensity, lake’s water level fluctuations, and climate dynamics in the East Sayan Mountains were investigated using pollen, mineralogical, petromagnetic, X-ray fluorescence analyses and radiocarbon dating. Based on these data sets from three high-mountain lakes, we reconstructed the variations in local and regional vegetation, biomes, and climate during the Late Glacial and Holocene in the Oka Plateau, East Sayan Mountains, and the surrounding areas.
