Abstract

Late Pleistocene moraines at Pine Creek in the east-central Sierra Nevada Range are differentiated into 3 separate relative-age groups using soil morphological properties, with increasing soil development on progressively older deposits. A soil-profile development index reflects the chronologic trend; however, lithologic and climatic variability, episodic aeolian influx, and soil erosion all confound these age trends
