Abstract

Soils along catenas of Pinedale and Bull Lake at Whiskey Basin, in the Wind River Range, were sampled to assess the effects of aeolian processes on soil development. Aeolian processes appear to have influenced soils by both depositing sediments and eroding topsoils. Pedogenic silt (often used as an indicator of wind deposition) accumulated in the Bluff Lake soils moderately correlate with pedogenic clay accummulated, suggesting that fine sediments may have been deposited and incorporated into soil formation here. The AA. suggest that aeolian modification of soils also can be demonstrated on moraines at Whiskey Basin
