Record #96784:

The variability of soil development on preboreal moraine ridge crests, Breiseterdalen, southern Norway / Danny McCarroll, Martyn Ware.

Title: The variability of soil development on preboreal moraine ridge crests, Breiseterdalen, southern Norway / Danny McCarroll, Martyn Ware.
Author(s): McCarroll, Danny.
Ware, Martyn.
Date: 1989.
In: Norsk Geografisk Tidsskrift. (1989.), Vol. 43(1) (1989)
Abstract: Assumption that moraine ridge crests provide uniform soil-forming environment is tested by recording soil depth and degree of horizon development on 13 sections of moraine ridge crest. Variability is not related to parent material or vegetation. Shallowest Brown Soils develop on steep, exposed ridge crests where duration of translocation potential is at minimum. Podzols develop in sheltered locations where snow accumulates. Moraine ridge crests, therefore, do not provide uniform soil-forming environment, and where degree of soil development is used as indicator of relative age, influence of moraine form must be taken into account.
