The White Sea petroglyphs are located 310 km NNW in the north-taiga subzone on the territory of the White Sea lowland. The landscape type here is different - maritime heavily paludified terraces overgrown by spruce and open pine stands. The landforms of the area are a coastal abrasive-accumulative plain, and a marshy flat. Natural conditions at the time the petroglyphs functioned differed from modem conditions. They also underwent considerable changes of the climate, forest structure and dynamics, composition of the fauna, water levels. According to the paleogeographer E.I.Devyatova there have been at least 10 periods of growing humidity alternated by drier periods or even heavy droughts since the VIII millenium B.P. Generally speaking the climate then was warmer, flora and fauna were richer. In the Middle Holocene the territory from the southern White Sea area to southern Onega was part of one natural-climatic zone where natural phenomena fluctuated synchronously.
