Soils and Quaternary geology by J. A. Catt Download PDF EPUB FB2

Calcic soils are commonly developed in Quaternary sediments throughout the arid and semiarid parts of the southwestern United States. In alluvial chronosequences, these soils have regional variations in their content of secondary calcium carbonate (CaCO 3) because of (1) the combined effects of the age of the soil, (2) the amount, seasonal distribution, and concentration of Ca ++ in rainfall.

More than two‐thirds of England is covered by Quaternary deposits, mainly of cold periods, and these generally provide better agricultural soils than pre‐Quaternary sediments.

Some relict features of both cold and temperate Quaternary stages also seem to be significant in determining the agricultural capability of British soils, but their Cited by: In these collective ways the framework has significantly impacted the disciplines of geography, geomorphology, soil geomorphology, Quaternary geology, and paleopedology, which includes undergraduate teaching and graduate training in these by: Leslie D.

This introductory paper describes Quaternary soils according to the climatic conditions under which they were formed (glacial, periglacial, temperate, arid and tropical). The paper discusses the geological characteristics of the soils and the processes that have acted in forming or altering them, as well as their geotechnical properties.

Geology is a science of such rapid growth that no apology is expected when from time to time a new text-book is added to those already in the field. The present work, however, is the outcome of the need of a text-book of very simple outline, in which causes and their consequences should be knit together as closely as possible,—a need long.

Two chapters discuss soils and their responses to climate, and wind-blown sediments. Two more describe volcanoes and earthquakes, and the use of Quaternary geology to understand the hazards they pose.

Pleistocene and Holocene climatic changes caused significant modification of formerly weathered soils, and hardened layers of substrata (duricrusts) which are now closely associated with scarps and mesas. This chapter outlines the main pedogenic processes, the role of time, and regional soil.

This book examines a period of spectacular environmental change, the Quaternary, with respect to soil-landscape relationships in Western Europe, the British Isles and North America.

The possibilities for using soils as climatic indicators in the same way as fossils are discussed. Many environmental issues, such as groundwater protection and soil contamination, involve problems of Quaternary geology, although glacial sediments and the climate controlled Quaternary stratigraphy differ fundamentally from the deposits of other s: 1.
