The contribution of nutrients from parent material in three deeply weathered soils of Peninsular Malaysia


, : The contribution of nutrients from parent material in three deeply weathered soils of Peninsular Malaysia. Geoderma 74(3/4): 219-233

Three deeply weathered soil profiles (2 Ferralsols and a Nitosol) developed over basalt, granite and schist were studied. The isovolumetric calculation was used to determine the intensity of elements depleted during weathering. The rain and stream waters near the respective areas were sampled and analysed. Despite the differences in their parent materials, the physicochemical properties of the soil were similar.
