Abstract

This paper describes different calcrete profiles developed on middle-late Pleistocene fan surfaces from SE Spain (Campo de Cartagena, Murcia). The results obtained in this study came from an integrated petrological and geomorphological analysis of calcretes profiles and fan surfaces. The occurrence of many features indicate the biogenic origin of the calcretes, mainly induced by plant root related microbial activity. Development of the calcrete profiles took place in 6 main stages and was driven by multiple phases of soil formation, erosion and reworking
