Abstract

Lithological and palynological data from organic levels below some ramparts suggest growth of most of the pingos in a thaw lake environment. Hydrostatic (closed-system) origin of the pingos is suggested. Radiocarbon data indicate that the pingos developed between 25,000 and 19,000 BP. Transformation into pingo remnants was not isochronous, but occurred until the middle Late Glacial (Late Weichselian).
