Abstract

The mineralogy-determining processes in both hot and cold desert soils are similar. The major process is accumulation and profile redistribution of soluble salts. Release of Fe-oxides and their redistribution within the soil matrix is a minor process. Weathering and clay mineral formation and their sequential development exhibit similar patterns but are of only limited extent
