The use of the stable and radioactive environmental isotopes in combination with the conventional classical methods appears to be a most productive way to study the regional natural processes which are developed during considerable intervals of time. The example of such a work based on application of the isotope and classical methods is the paleohydrologic investigation in the Aral-Caspian basin which was carried out for a number of years by the initiative and practical action of the authors.
