Abstract

This paper synthesises existing and new research into the influence of man on the development of iron pans in Irish soils. The common theme in this work is the influence of organic matter, directly or indirectly, on the fate of iron and on its concentration into seams of differing age and degree of robustness, thickness and durability. The data refer to 5 locations in Ireland where addition of organic matter seems to be the only pedogenic factor likely to influence iron accumulation. In all instances, the development of an iron pan is a relatively modern process, superimposed on an earlier generation of distinctly different horizons
