Soils or sediments? The role of Roger Langohr's process-oriented approach in understanding carbonate-related palaeosols of the stratigraphic record.

Mindszenty, Andrea


This paper is a summary of palaeopedologically-oriented research on and the interpretation of subaerial exposure-related features in cyclically organised shallow marine carbonates. We point out that the structure of soil profiles in such environments cannot be interpreted simply in terms of pedogenesis. Apparent soil-thickness is not necessarily proportional with soil-maturity and clays and secondary carbonates are not always direct indicators of climate, either.
