Abstract

The AA. document relict cryopedogenic features in strongly developed calcic horizons on a flight of fluvial terraces in a mid-latitude, intermontane basin in western Wyoming. Evidence of mixing, fracture, displacement and orientation of soil materials, independent of evidence for biologic or recrystallisation processes, strongly suggests cryoturbation. Thus the recognition of relict cryoturbation features in mid-latitude calcic soils may have significant implications regarding their use for geochronology, paleoenvironmental and palaeoclimatic reconstruction
