Document title

Soil-carbonate genesis in the Pinacate volcanic field, northwestern Sonora, Mexico

Abstract

The first attempt to calibrate the Th/U soil-carbonate technique with K-Ar dating. Analysis of particle-size distribution and carbonate and soluble salt content of the soils provided insights into past climates in the study area. Rates of carbonate accumulation are calculated by estimating bulk densities and are compared to rates elsewhere in the arid and semiarid southwestern United States
