Abstract
In the valley of the Chelif (Algeria) under a sub-humid Mediterranean climate (575 mm annual rainfall), profiles of young chestnut soils developed on permeable alluvial matter show decrease of organic matter with depth from 1.19-1.32% in the topsoil to 0.5-0.7% at 100 cm, and accumulation of lime in the deeper horizons (29-30% at 100 cm as compared with 23-26% in the top soil).
