Abstract

Sunk Island, an area of reclaimed estuarine alluvial sediments in the lower Humber estuary, provides a series of recent surfaces ranging from around 100 to 260 years old, upon which soil properties associated with soil ripening can be examined free from the disturbance of subsequent flooding and sedimentation. Within the first 100 years of pedogenesis, overall bulk density of the sediment has increased, and profile differentiation has resulted from structural development, organic matter accumulation and tillage. Variations in aeration and moisture content have resulted in mottling, which has become less prevalent as the soils develop
