The micromorphology of Quaternary river terrace deposits in the Kennet Valley, Berkshire, England



The micromorphology of Quaternary river terrace deposits in the Kennet Valley, Berkshire, England



Earth Surface Processes and Landforms 9(4): 343-355



Three groups of micromorphological features are recognized in the river terrace deposits of the Kennet Valley. These are orthic pedological features, orthic pedological features disrupted by cryoturbation, and transport-inherited features. Fluvial and solifluction processes account for the presence of the transport-inherited features.
