A well-developed terrace was identified along the Chikoi River at the Russia-Mongolia border. The terrace deposits consist of massive fine sands of more than 8 m with numerous organic-rich paleosol horizons. Resulting radiocarbon ages for paleosol horizons suggest that floodplain emergence and terrace formation occurred in the early Holocene.
