    This study assesses changes in the environmental conditions in Chernyshov Bay (northern part of Aral Sea Western Basin) during the last ~2 ky from geochemical and diatom analyses of sediment core C2/2004. Comparison of fossil assemblages with the contemporary distribution of diatoms in the Aral Sea suggests that considerable changes occurred in water level as well as salinity.
