Abstract

In central Nigeria the Fluviovolcanic Series of the Jos Plateau are composed by deeply weathered volcanic rocks and sediments. The sequence is often capped by ferricretes. Changing groundwater conditions, that may be the result of plateau uplift, are reflected in relatively datable paleosols. Consequently, concepts of landscape evolution must take into account changing environments
