Abstract

The AA. compare pedogenesis with slope position on 2 different aged moraines. Major differences in soil properties between the 2 moraines are associated with texture. Pyroclastic parent material is much coarser, with textures of sand and gravel, while older glacial till parent material typically displays a texture of loamy sand. The use of soils as relative age indicators is cautioned for future work in the Oregon Cascades due to the complexity associated with an active volcanic landscape
