Abstract

In the Holocene alluvial deposits of the Fraja Valley (Cadiz Province, SW Spain) the AA. have used geomorphological, mineralogical, sedimentological and paleomagnetic data with dating based on radiocarbon and pottery to distinguish episodes of erosion, sedimentation and pedogenesis during the last 4000 years. The data sets allow to distinguish soils formed in situ from transported soil-sediments. The AA. suggest that in alluvial sequences magnetostratigraphic records can be used to distinguish periods of land surface stability, when pedogenetic processes prevailed under a vegetation cover, and morphodynamically active periods, in which soil erosion, transportation and sedimentation predominated
