Abstract

Complexity in weathering profiles may reflect variability in the parent material and/or complex feedback relationships within regolith weathering systems. Because regolith formation modifies or destroys the parent material, it is difficult to determine the extent to which variability in the weathering profile is inherited, as opposed to created by the weathering processes. The state probability function (SPF), designed to model the spatial pattern of transitions in system states, is applied to complex weathering profiles formed in glauconitic materials in east Texas to address this issue
