Soil-forming rates and processes on Quaternary moraines near Lago Buenos Aires, Argentina

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The 2 main goals of this study are to investigate the mechanisms and rates of soil formation and to identify soil properties that can be used to correlate other moraine sequences in Patagonia to this highly resolved chronology. The soils investigated are situated on or near the crests of Quaternary moraines east of Lago Buenos Aires, about 50 km east of the Andean Cordillera. The AA. present a carbonate cycling model that describes potential sources and calcium mobility in this environment. Calibration of rates of soil formation creates a powerful correlation tool for comparing other glacial deposits in Argentina to the well-dated moraines at Lago Buenos Aires
