Abstract

The goal of this paper is to determine the processes and/or environmental controls responsible for the distribution of rock fragments in soils and weathering mantles in the Ouachita Mountains, and the implications for regolith evolution. The regolith is a dynamic feature, reflecting the influences of vertical and horizontal processes, of active weathering at the bedrock interface, and of surficial sediment movements. The role of trees in redistributingrock fragments suggests that significant regolith mixing occurs over time scales associated with forest vegetation communities
