Abstract : The report describes the application of the geobotanical interpretation of aerial photographs of the regions to the north of the Caspian Sea to the determination of the geological landscape of this area. The plant associations growing under specific conditions delineate distinctly the location of various soils and hydrological conditions and hence, the geological origin, age, and topography.
