Evidence of slope-scale element translocation (lateral podzolization) has been documented in sandy areas of Northern Poland. Landscape position and features of the studied soils suggest inter-pedon translocation of organic matter, iron and aluminum as the concept of Entic Podzol genesis. The results of this study show that the lateral podzolization process can be common even along slopes built from loose, permeable sandy deposits, where one would not expect any effective intra-layer solution flow. On slopes of more complex morphology, small closed depressions act as geochemical traps, where compounds leached from the upper slope soils can accumulate. Radiocarbon dating carried out on a buried Entic Podzol found in one of the profiles shows that the process has continued for more than 1 200 years.
