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.
