Record #135528:

Soils of some Norse settlements in south-western Greenland / G.K. Rutherford.

Title: Soils of some Norse settlements in south-western Greenland / G.K. Rutherford.
Author(s): Rutherford, G. K.
Date: 1995.
In: Arctic. (1995.), Vol. 48(4) (1995)
Abstract: Despite high latitude, soils were found to have well-developed, brightly coloured profiles. They are generally acidic, sandy, strongly organic and high in exchange cations. Iron extraction data suggest moderate pedologic activity. No soil evidence was found for erosion's causing abandonment of settlements.
