  • Field and modern analytical methods have shown that Floodplain soils with a pronounced A2 horizon are a large group of soils that occur under various ecologic conditions. They include Alluvial Sod Acid and Meadow Acid residual podzolized or residual
  • Gray Forest soils, Alluvial Sod-Podzolic and Alluvial Gray Forest residual-sod soils, Alluvial Pseudopodzolic (Pseudogley) soils, Alluvial Sod-Podzolic soils, and Alluvial Gray Forest soils. Classification and nomenclature of these soils should take
  • into account their ecology and formation history as well as their morphology. Floodplain soils with a differentiated profile, formed dominantly by eluvial-gley and lessivage, are the dominant soils in this group.―(L'Ed.).

  • Late Holocene soil formation in the valley of the River Yenisei, Central Siberia
  • Alluvial sod soil sequences from the 9 m terrace in the valley of the River Yenisei were used to reconstruct the paleoecological history and the paleohydrological regime of the river. This paper describes the alluvial soils and establishes
  • the processes of organic matter transformation in the Holocene alluvial sod soils in relation to changing Holocene environments.
  • Alluvial fans as records of Holocene sediment yield in the central Great Plains of southwest Nebraska
  • Alluvial cone ; C 14 dating ; Climatic variation ; Geochronology ; Holocene ; Nebraska ; Palaeosol ; Quaternary ; Sediment budget ; Stratigraphy ; United States of America
  • On alluvial fans, increased rates of sedimentation are directly related to increased sediment yields from their watersheds. Since well developed soils imply prolonged landscape stability, soils that are buried by alluvial-fan deposits are evidence
  • of a shift, at least locally, toward increased sediment yields. The objective of this paper is to propose a Holocene history of sediment yield increases in the central Great Plains based on the record that buried alluvial-fan soils provide.
  • Late Vistulian and Holocene fossil soils developed from aeolian and alluvial sediments of the Warsaw Basin
  • C14 dating ; Eolian features ; Palaeo-environment ; Palaeosol ; Palynology ; Pedogenesis ; Poland ; Quaternary ; Soil ; Stratigraphy
  • Stratotype profiles of fossil soils of the Late Vistulian and Holocene developed from alluvial and aeolian sediments were recognized. Different analyses and radiocarbon dating of organic substance enabled to distinguish diagnostic pedostratigraphic
  • horizons, what allowed to determine the age and produce a typology of soils. On the basis of soil dating, indirectly a precise determination of alluvial and aeolian processes in the Warsaw Basin was carried out. The bottom of organic substance of the oldest
  • among fossil soils in the Warsaw Basin was dated for 13,340 years B.P. The mineral sediments of this horizon are still older.
  • Soils in the Holocene alluvial sediments of the Rio Fraja Valley, Spain : in situ or soil-sediments ?
  • of erosion, sedimentation and pedogenesis during the last 4000 years. The data sets allow to distinguish soils formed in situ from transported soil-sediments. The AA. suggest that in alluvial sequences magnetostratigraphic records can be used to distinguish
  • In the Holocene alluvial deposits of the Fraja Valley (Cadiz Province, SW Spain) the AA. have used geomorphological, mineralogical, sedimentological and paleomagnetic data with dating based on radiocarbon and pottery to distinguish episodes
  • periods of land surface stability, when pedogenetic processes prevailed under a vegetation cover, and morphodynamically active periods, in which soil erosion, transportation and sedimentation predominated.
  • Alluvial soil chronosequence in the inner coastal plain, Central Virginia
  • Chronosequence ; Fluvial terrace ; Soil ; Soil properties ; United States ; Virginia ; Weathering
  • The purpose of this study was to document the chronological sequence of soils present on an extensive series of terrace deposits found along the James River in the Fall Zone of central Virginia. Some of the oldest soils and landforms in the Virginia
  • Coastal Plain are present here, along with fluvial terraces that correlate with coastal terraces farther east. The AA. clarify soil-geomorphic relations and provide a basis for allostratigraphic subdivision of the inner Coastal Plain.
  • Impacts of Holocene climatic variations on alluvial fan activity below snowpatches in subarctic Québec
  • Alluvial cone ; Canada ; Climatic variation ; Dendrochronology ; Holocene ; Nivation hollow ; Periglacial features ; Precipitation ; Quebec ; Snow ; Soil moisture
  • In the Lake Guillaume-Delisle area of subarctic Québec, storm-generated alluvial fans have been active sporadically throughout the Holocene. In this study, the AA. propose that the persistence of late-lying snowpatches in fan catchments during
  • Holocene cold episodes promoted alluvial fan activity by lowering the precipitation threshold required to trigger a torential event. This hypothesis was tested by characterizing the depositional processes responsible for alluvial fan formation below
  • snowpatches, and by reconstructing the Holocene alluvial fan activity.
