Factors Controlling Magnetism of Reddish Brown Soil Profiles from Calcarenites in Southern Spain: Dust Inputor In-situ Pedogenesis?

Liu, Q.S; Zhang, Chunxia; Torrent, Jose; Barron, Vidal; Hu, Pengxiang; Jiang, Zhaoxia; Duan, Zongqi


Under aerobic conditions, the A and B horizons of soils are magnetically enhanced due to neoformation of ferrimagnets through pedogenesis. This study systematically investigated soils developed on calcarenites of Neogene age in southern Spain to determine the dominant factors controlling the soil magnetism. Geochemical and clay mineral analyses indicate that aeolian dust significantly contribute to the A and B horizon material of the Spanish soil. Nevertheless, the magnetic enhancement of soils...[Show more]
