Observations on Late Pleistocene Flooding of the Eurasian Continental Interior and Possible Alluvial Origin of Loess

Fluctuations in the level of the Caspian Sea have greatly influenced coastal communities for millennia. This is due in part to a dynamic balance between regional climate, temperature, rainfall in the catchment areas of the rivers feeding the basin (principally the Volga), and evaporation from the surface of the sea. As an endorheic basin (i.e., having no outflow), and evaporation estimated to be around one metre per year, the Caspian Sea level will either rise or fall depending on climate and rainfall. Currently the level is around minus 28 m relative to average sea level, (asl). In the present era, fluctuations are only on the order of a few meters, and while significant to those living near the coastline, this is minor compared to the dramatic regressions and transgressions associated with the Ice Ages.
