Effects of climate change on soils in glacial deposits, Wind River Basin, Wyoming

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In a detailed study of soils in the Wind River Range and Wind River Basin, characteristics of near-surface horizons do not follow age trends. However, the underlying carbonate-bearing horizons do have age-related characteristics. This soil paradox may be related to glacial-interglacial cycles in which 1) wind erodes near-surface horizons and then provides new parent material and 2) cryoturbation disrupts carbonate horizons, remobilizing carbonate and changing carbonate morphology but with only minimal loss of carbonate from the soil
