Abstract

The eastern Caucasus is an example of correlations between morphostructure caracterized by the importance of soft rocks and neotectonics, the peculiar role of the Caspian base level, climatic changes and present day semiarid prevailing conditions. The pliopleistocene stratigraphy and tectonic are pointed out together with the resulting landforms, the drainage patterns, the marine and continental terraces. The problems of climatic inherited forms, and their explanation by climatic changes or neotectonics is discussed.
