Transect studies of soil sequences have been made across four northwest-southeast oriented valleys in southeastern Ohio. In general, soils occurring on southwestfacing slopes have an appreciably thinner A1 and more strongly developed A2 and B horizons than in the soils on the northeast-facing slopes. The upper solum of the soils on the southwest facing slopes is also more acid and has wider C/N ratios. The differences noted in the soils appear to be closely related to the different microclimatic regimes and associated differences in vegetation. Physical and chemical data on soils are included.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
