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

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.
