Supplement to: Kvavadze, Eliso V; Rukhadze, L P; Tretyak, P R; Petrenko, L V (1987): On the migration on high-mountain vegetation belts in the late Holocene in the valley of the Amtqel River (Abkhazia). Bulletin of the Academy of Sciences of the Georgian SSR, 125(2), 421-424, hdl:10013/epic.37431.d001
The rock mass of fluvial and fluvioglacial deposits of the Late Holocene has been studied at the altitude of 1830 m a.s.l. using the palynologic, carpologic, geomorphologic, and geochronologic methods. It was ascertained that in the mid-Subatlantic period the area of the present-day beech elfin woodland was occupied by a belt of alpine meadows. Thus, the lower border of alpine meadows ran 370-400 m lower than the recent level, pointing to a rather significant cooling of the climate that occurred from ca 2nd cent. A.D.
