Some aspects of the effect of topography aad parent material on the distribution of ferrallitic soils, tropical ferruginous soils and vertisols in the region of Bossangoa in the northwest of the Central African Republic



Some aspects of the effect of topography aad parent material on the distribution of ferrallitic soils, tropical ferruginous soils and vertisols in the region of Bossangoa in the northwest of the Central African Republic



Cah. Pedol. ORSTOM 6: 259-275



The development of a terraced landscape with indurated surfaces and the presence of stone-lines are explained with reference to three toppsequences. The effect of topography and drainage is shown in the gradual transition from red ferrallitic soils to pale brown tropical ferruginous soils on Quarternary formations, with intermediate ochre-coloured soils.
