Abstract

Stratigraphically the loess/palaeosol sequences fall into two broad types : a thicker sequence (20 m) containing 10 clearly defined palaeosols| and a thinner sequence (6-10 m) containing 5 or 6 palaeosols. The characteristics of the palaeosols, in the light of the TL dates available, suggest that the Kashmir sequence is recording the variations in the relationship between rates of silt supply, rates of weathering and period of soil formation. The nature of the soils is consistent with the view that none of them formed in much more than 10,000 years, and that they do not each represent one soil-forming interlude for the duration of one interglacial
