Ein Eisen-Bändchen-Stagnogley in der Bodengesellschaft der mittleren Arktis Kanadas

Klaus-Eberhard Bleich & Karl Stahr
Analytical results of an "middle arctic" soil profile are presented. During field-work this profile was called an Ironpan-Podzol (cryic Placorthod), whereas further study elucidated better calling it an "Arctic-Iropan-Stagnogley" (cryic Placaquod). The morphology of the horizons was predominantly formed by lateral supply and fractionated precipitation of lime and hydroxides of iron and manganese. These facts show the great importance of chemical weathering as a factor of the environment in the middle arctic region.
