Abstract

The soil chronosequence on Black Mesa, including 17 well-dated surface and buried soils, permits quantification of rates of pedogenesis in a semi-arid region. High resolution dating suggests rates of pedogenesis are rapid. They incorporate the combined effects of slight variations in elevation, climate, vegetation, topography and parent materials as well as the influence of additions of atmospheric dust at the soil surface
