Abstract

The presence of a compact fragipan horizon help to explain the association of the degradation of the soil and the permeability of the substratum. This is possible on basis of the hypothesis which links the fragipan development to ice segregation in permafrost aggrading in an environment with relatively high water supply from the subsoil. The degree of degradation, and its distribution in the landscape, can be explained in a much more satisfactory way by these processes associated with a periglacial climate than by the presence of a particular forest vegetation.
