A Brief Analysis of the Soil Cover of the Upper Alpine Belt of the Northern Part of the Central and Eastern Caucasus
The soils of the study area occupy the highlands of the northern macro slope of the Greater Caucasus from the upper rivers Kuma and Malka to the right bank of the Samur river basin. Characteristic elements are systems of volcanic and chest ridges and interquest depressions. In the southern part, the quest ridges are separated from the axial part of the Greater Caucasus by an extensive North Jurassic depression with elevations of 2000-2300 m above sea level.
