The article defines the stratigraphic position of the Holocene buried soils among other deposits of the northeastern slope of the Lesser Caucasus, their mineralogical and palynological composition is analyzed. The correlation and dynamics of changes in the content of carbonates and humus was studied, which are the main indicators of the composition of soils, according to the sections and depth of the soil layers. On the basis of the results obtained the features of formation were determined and the paleogeographic conditions for the formation of Holocene buried soils including the climate and vegetation of this period, were restored.
