Contribution to the study of a sequence of red ferrallitic soils and yellowish-brown tropical ferruginous soils. Examination of some profiles in the Central African Republic



Contribution to the study of a sequence of red ferrallitic soils and yellowish-brown tropical ferruginous soils. Examination of some profiles in the Central African Republic



Cah. Pedol. ORSTOM 7: 449-494



A detailed description is given of 2 representative profiles. The red soils have developed over tabular old erosion surfaces and the yellow soils along poorly drained valley slopes. Annual rainfall is 1400 mm and mean temperature 26 degrees C. In the red soils bases and silica, but not Fe, have been leached put, Fe accumulating in the surface horizons. The proportion of micaceous clay to kaolinite is approximately 1 to 9.
