Geomorphological and sedimentological investigations in the lower reaches of the Orkhon River in northern Mongolia provide evidence for Late Pleistocene terraces, Holocene soil development, aeolian accumulation, soil erosion and slope wash. Optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) and radiocarbon dating of aeolian and colluvial sediments including paleosols show different sedimentation and soil formation periods. These periods can be associated with more humidity found in other areas of Central Asia as well
