Genesis of beige (leached tropical ferruginous) soils by transformation of red (ferrallitic) soils of Casamance (Senegal). Propagation modalities



Genesis of beige (leached tropical ferruginous) soils by transformation of red (ferrallitic) soils of Casamance (Senegal). Propagation modalities



Cahiers ORSTOM, Pedologie 16(3): 231-249



On the "Continental terminal" formation of west Africa, under humid climates, large areas of deep red ferrallitic soils occur. Further north, where very dry and very humid periods alternate, they change sharply into beige, leached ferruginous tropical soils, with similar mineralogical composition to the red soils, but differing in morphology and hydric behaviour.
