We present the results from studying the landscapes in the Inderskii salt-dome area: the geomorphological features of the Inderskie mountains, the soil geochemistry, and the species composition of vegetation. A comparative analysis is made of the major salt-dome areas of the Precaspian lowland: Bogdinsko-Baskunchakskii, El’tonskii, Inderskii, and Chelkarskii.
