An atmospheric precipitation is small and so are the springs of Big Caucasus area.The presence of rare and wild flora testifies that the climate of Gobustan some tens of thousands of years ago was damper, and the atmospheric precipitation was sufficient, so springs were abounding with water.Azerbaijan and its Caspian coastline are home to nearly 400 mud volcanoes, more than half the total throughout the world.In 2001, one mud volcano 15 kilometers from Baku made world headlines when it suddenly started ejecting flames 15 meters high.Throughout many centuries under impact of the sun, wind, seismic activity and various atmospheric precipitation, blocks of stones broke away from the edges of a vast limestone layer and rolled down the slopes.Here, in the area displaying the fantastic scene of destruction, the huge blocks of stones and rocks chaotically pressed against each other, forming about 20 big and small caves and the canopies serving as a natural shelter to the inhabitants.In 1939, archeologist Isaak Jafarzade began the first archeological investigation of the petroglyphs at Gobustan.

The vegetative world of Gobustan has a character that is common for deserts and semi-deserts.Some of notable features among other animal rock arts are marine species that can not be found in today's Caspian Sea, such as baleen whales, beaked whales or dolphins, and auks.The climate of Gobustan is a dry semi-subtropical one, with rather mild winters and very hot dry summers.The petroglyphs and rock engravings are an exceptional testimony to a way of life that has disappeared, graphic representations of activities connected with hunting and fishing at a time when the climate and vegetation of the area were warmer and wetter than today.Iskhag Jafarzadeh who was one of the pioneers of Azerbaijan archaeology and ethnography, excavated over seventy artifacts on Azerbaijan's territory and studied the Gobustan rock paintings.
