Paleosols in Hesse

, : Paleosols in Hesse. Geologisches Jahrbuch, F 14: 101-128

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.

Stable isotope ratios (reported as delta (super 13) C) of organic carbon preserved in paleosols have potential utility as a valuable paleoecological indicator if the isotopic composition of paleobiomass is preserved in the paleosol organic carbon...
