Physical and chemical properties of four Cryorthods (Podzols) developed in silty materials in the Cook Inlet-Susitna Lowland of south central Alaska were studied. Intensity of development of the soils was directly related to precipitation rates. Cryorthods in the southern part of the Lowland appear to have developed from previously existing Cryandepts (Andos) following replacement of grasslands by forest. In the northern part, the loess was probably subject to podzolization immediately after its deposition.
