Abstract

Frost is a pedogenetic agent. This paper describes the use of frost features in soil for paleoclimatic and stratigraphic interpretation. It is possible to differentiate periods of frost activity from those of temperate pedogenesis by macroscopic and microcopic criteria. The interrelations between frost and other pedogenetic processes allow a better understanding of climatic evolution and deterioration throughout the Neogene and especially during the Quaternary and the Holocene. Most of the inherited frost features in European soils are younger than 480 ka BP. The differentiation between frost and tectonic pertubations is very important for calculation of soil erosional budgets
