Abstract

Based on geochronological data, it is shown that the formation of sediments of a 50–80 m terrace of Lake Baikal occurred during the Middle Pleistocene and its top part was formed in the Late Pleistocene. This conclusion is confirmed by polychronous burials of mammals related to the early and late mammoth faunal complexes: Canis, Mammuthus, Equus, Coelodonta, Cervus, Capreolus, and Bison.
