Morphology and Genesis of Six “Red Hill” Soils in the Oregon Coast Range1

  1. R. B. Parsons and
  2. C. A. Balster2



The distribution and development of six soils in the Oregon Coast Range are related to geomorphic surfaces and slope gradients on a basalt highland. The soils exhibit one or more textural discontinuities as evidenced primarily by stone lines and stone contents which decrease with profile depth.

Several soils having high base saturation and contents of Ca and Mg are related to landslides and saddles where base-enriched groundwater moving through basalt saprolite may temporarily accumulate.
