Zur Mikromorphologie und Genese lessivierter Böden im Jungmoränengebiet Schleswig-Holsteins und Mecklenburg-Vorpommerns

Peter Kuhn, Peter Janetzko & Dietmar Schröder
In German soil science the widely accepted hypothesis on Luvisol-formation states that Luvisols of Weichselian sediments are purely Holocene soils with a main formation phase during the Atlantic. Although controversially discussed since the sixties, the genesis of widespread albicambic Luvisols, with a simplified horizon sequence Ah, Ap/Bw/E(/E+Bt)/2Bt/C, developed on the flat and slightly undulating till plains of the north German young moraine area, is not yet clarified. Especially systematic micromorphological analysis combined with (pedo-)stratigraphical work...
