Paleosols in Hesse

Geologisches Jahrbuch, F 14: 101-128
Paleosols in Hesse
The known occurrences of paleosols in Hesse can be subdivided as follows: (1) pre-Pleistocene paleosols, (2) paleosols in loess, and (3) relicts of Chernozems. Remnants of pre-Pleistocene paleosols are found in nearly all areas. Relicts of Latosols and Plastosols are widespread on Tertiary volcanic rocks and on Devonian sediments of the Rheinische Schiefergebirge. In Buntsandstein areas intensively weathered bedrock is found locally below the covering solifluction sediments.
