Pandivere

Pandivere

 

an upland in the northeastern Estonian SSR. Maximum elevation, 166 m (Mount Emumägi).

The terrain is hilly moraine and in places hilly plain with clearly defined eskers as long as 50 km in the southeast. There are outcrops of Silurian limestone, and karstic relief formations are characteristic. The Pandivere Upland is the source of the Keila, Pirita, Jägala, Valgejôgi, Kunda, Kasari, Pedja, and Pärnu rivers. A large part of the upland is under cultivation. [19–4l7–2]

Unfortunately, the outputs of the climate models and the observation data of the reference period did not permit the evaluation of more detailed climate variations caused for example by the Pandivere and the South Estonian uplands.
It can be seen on the map that Virumaa, and above all its north-western, central and eastern parts are largely covered with swamplands and forests, which is why the most densely populated areas can be found in the western part of the county on the Pandivere Highland, and in the northern part of the county on the Viru Plateau.
The Ubja area is located in northern slope of the Pandivere Upland, south of the northern coast of Estonia (Figs 1 and 2).
The till-covered plain of the Estonian part of the catchment is higher in the south-west and north-west due to the presence of uplands (Pandivere, Haanja, Otepaa, and Sakala) (Iital et al., 2005).
