Short summary
Analysing the genesis of Quaternary sediments is important for understanding the glaciation history and development of marine sediments in the northern part of Western Siberia. The key features of sedimentation and landform formation have been characterised for the first time in an example of a lithological column from the lower sources of the Nadym River. A comprehensive analysis was performed on the lithological, petrographic and geomorphological data from the upper Quaternary stratum.
