Polar Desert Soils1

  1. J. C. F. Tedrow2

Abstract

Abstract

The northern extremeties of ice-free land are mantled primarily with Polar Desert soils. Polar Desert soils are sparsely colonized by vascular plants and in many instances the organic component scarcely enters the soil system. Low temperature, relatively dry soil conditions, a desert pavement, mildly acid to alkaline reaction, and salt efflorescences commonly characterize the Polar Desert soils.
