Article
Onega Ice Lake developed in front of the receding Late Weichselian ice margin in Russian Karelia. Glacial varves that formed in Onega Ice Lake have been earlier studied by means of varve counts, palaeomagnetism and ¹⁴ C AMS dates from small lakes north of modern Lake Onega and from Lake Onega proper. Synchronous changes in magnetic parameters and s...

GIS-based reconstructions of Lake Onego development in the Late Pleistocene and the Holocene are presented. Reconstructions originated from the ideas of the Lake Onego depression deglaciation model proposed by I. N. Demidov and the isobase data of E. I. Devyatova. Twelve digital paleogeographic maps were developed and now are available on-line. The...
Article
The analysis of both the mineralogical and geochemical composition and the stratigraphy of Holocene sediments of Lake Onego provided a novel interpretation of their genesis. Their mineral composition suggests that Holocene bottom sediments generally inherit the composition of terrigenous material that enters the lake with river runoff. The predomin...
