Abstract. The climate development of the Late Glacial/Holocene transition is one of the most riveting problem of environmental change under short-term cooling. This paper is devoted to a special reconstruction of climate and Vegetation in the Northern Eurasia with special reference to chronological level at 10,500 years b. p., i. e. just in the middle of the Younger Dryas . Reconstruction of Vegetation was based on detailed palaeo-climate maps with numeric estimation of temperature and precipitation parameters. Concluding results were affirmed by independent palaeodata.
