The inverted stratigraphy of a turf-banked solifluction lobe formed in a podzol in northern Norway is presented. Encircling silt cappings, and related microstructures, are described from thin sections. The presence of these microstructures in the near-surface and base of the solifluction lobe, but not at mid-depths, supports the notion of an inverted stratigraphy
