Abstract

On overlapping sections and drill cores of an autochthonous paleosoil and the saprolite underneath, the morphological, geochemical and mineralogical zonation of a complete profile of the weathering mantle has been reconstructed. The data indicate a polygenesis of the weathering mantle during the Tertiary, due to descending groundwater tables caused by the beginning tectonic uplift of the Rhenish Massif and drier climatic periods during the Middle Tertiary. Periglacial processes during the Pleistocene led to a further removal of the weathering mantle
