Quantitative aspects of carbonate leaching of soils with differing ages and climates

Auteurs :

Description :
Carbonate leaching rates in several soils in Switzerland and in the Lake Constance region were calculated and related to landscape development. The leached depth of the soil, the carbonate content and the soil density profile are sensitive to soil age. A first database of carbonate leaching and its relationship to soil age is presented. A simple relationship between the amount of precipitation and carbonate losses was found.
