Abstract

The coral reef terraces of Huon Peninsula in Papua New Guinea at 6°S range from the Holocene terrace I to the more than 300,000 years old terrace XI. Since the ages of the coral reefs are known, a chronosequence of the different pedogenetic processes can be established. Reasons for the retarded pedogenesis are discussed. The different weathering intensities are time-generated without any paleoclimatic implications
