The value of fossil and relict soils as indicators of past climates or periods differs greatly. It is rather high when we want to reconstruct former climates, of which we can often find out the general type and partly also the approximate amount of temperature and precipitation. On the other hand reliable statements on the time which fossil soils take for their development are largely confined to relative data, which we can only get under...
