By the beginning of the Holocene, the outflow from the Vortsjarv
Depression proceeded mainly through the southern branch (Fig.
Mit den russischen Fischern kamen bessere Fangnetze und ausgefeiltere Fangweisen nach Estland und verbreiteten sich uber den gesamten Sprachraum: vom Peipussee zum See Vortsjarv

1%]) we used data on phytoplankton, hydrochemistry, and Secchi depth collected from 1964 to 2007 in eutrophic Lake Vortsjarv
and from 1982 to 2007 in mesotrophic/eutrophic Lake Peipsi.
Our aim was to find out to which extent the fossil PhPs in such a large shallow and turbid lake as Vortsjarv
carry the information on the history of phytoplankton communities.
pikeperch is an ecologically and economically significant game fish, whose population is heavily affected by exploitation.
This is in good agreement with the oxygen isotope ratio for the Early Holocene marl in lakes Vortsjarv

Exceptionally, some sections along the ancient river valleys like Ahja, Vohandu, and Piusa, where erosion has deeply cut into Devonian rocks, but also some cliff walls on the western and eastern shores of Lake Peipsi and Lake Vortsjarv

Proper), but until now there is no analytical proof for that.
Additionally, the gravity field over major water bodies, such as Lake Peipsi and Lake Vortsjarv
, also Riga Bay, need to be specified.
