The properties and genesis of four middle altitude Dystrandept volcanic ash soils from Mauna Kea, Hawaii


The properties and genesis of four middle altitude Dystrandept volcanic ash soils from Mauna Kea, Hawaii



Pacific Science 23(2): 161-171



ISSN/ISBN: 0030-8870

Four soils, originally classified as Latosolic Brown Forest, collected from the north slopes of Mauna Kea, at 3,400 to 6,900 feet, contained volcanic glass and plagioclase, with magnetite, plant opal, and small amounts of olivine and pyroxene. Clay fractions contained allophane. Genetic factors and a summary of properties are tabulated. The driest and least weathered soil is classified as an Entic Dystrandept, two are Typic Dystrandepts, and the wettest and most weathered is a Hydric Dystrandept.
