In parts of southern France, the Russian Plain, south central Turkey, the western USA and in Germany, slopes are covered by deposits (cover-beds) formed by geomorphic processes not limited to linear discharges. Often, loess material is mixed into them. As they influence pedogenesis, they contribute to the understanding of soil properties and soil distribution. Horizon boundaries occur at depths where cover-bed properties change. Published results are reviewed and new data reported
