Abstract

This paper relates the types of organic matter present to the type and degree of pedogenic processes in buried soils of the Gilwood Member, north central Alberta. The paleosols include Protosols, Gleysols and a Calcisol and range from mature to immature, strongly oxidized to strongly gleyed, and are with and without calcareous nodules. The results provide a new way to assess the intensity of weathering in paleosols based on the amounts of different forms of preserved organic matter and the type of degradation it has undergone
