Abstract

Six soil profiles in the area around the Cecita Lake, representative of different geomorphological units, were characterised by field work, optical microscopy and SEM-EDS analysis. A strong influence on weathering and pedogenesis by micro-scale features of primary minerals and parent rock fabrics is shown. Key roles are played also by relief, in the development and preservation or stripping of regolith + soil mantles in relation to natural and man-induced phenomena; by time, controlling rates and degree of development of the main weathering features; by climate, in terms of type and intensity of dominant processes
