Abstract

The geogaphy of soils has been studied in the tundra of the sandy Kolyma Lowland between latitudes 69° and 70°N. Controlled by a shallow permafrost depth and low precipitation values, relict features of multiple Podzol formation are mainly influenced by current soil genesis of slight leaching, intense cryoturbation and a secondary enrichment of bases, including sodium brought to the area from the Arctic Ocean
