Contribution to genesis of palaeosols (Almagres) on the Canary Islands (Spain) by thin section technique



Contribution to genesis of palaeosols (Almagres) on the Canary Islands (Spain) by thin section technique



Anales de Edafologia y Agrobiologia 46(5-6): 667-685



In thin section, "almagre" is red coloured with transmitted and oblique incident light. A pedogenic process influenced by heat leads to the formation of haematite producing a ferruginous impregnation of the micromass, the process being associated to a fairly intense ferruginisation of lapilli fragments. Pressure and temperature compact the original soil, the porosity depending on the type of microstructure.
