Gray-Brown Podzolic soils grade into the Podzols in a relatively narrow belt of soils in Northeastern Minnesota. It is the purpose of this paper to present the properties of soils found in this narrow transition zone.

Podzols and Brown Podzolic soils are found predominantly in the northern part of this zone and Gray-Brown Podzolic soils predominate to the south. In the narrow belt under consideration there is an intermingling of Podzols, Brown Podzolic, Gray-Brown Podzolic, and Gray Wooded soils. Influence of climatic and biotic factors on an interlacing of parent materials from several different glacial drifts has given rise to some rather distinctive profile differentiations in this zone.
