The Selyemrét of Ócsa is located on the northern part of the Duna-Tisza Interfluve at the transitional zone of two landscapes with different morphological characters. At the boundary of the Duna-Tisza Interfluve and the Dunamenti Plain in Bács-Kiskun County a marshland sequence can be found from Hajós to Ócsa. Since there have been environmental historical analysis on the southern part of the area earlier, we extended our research project to the bog of Ócsa as well. The bog of Ócsa is located in a former pool formed by the Danube River in which eolic sand and thick lake sequence deposited from the end of the Pleistocene. The initial oligotrophic lake became mesotrophic, therefore thick carbonate sediment deposited. Afterwards, as a consequence of the Neolithic human populations the natural development of the lake changed drastically and the lake filled up. The pollen and quarter malacological analysis of the area support the mentioned geological processes.
