It is increasingly clear that many of the residues of later prehistoric occupation only now occur within ploughsoil and sealed buried soil
A buried soil
, relict soil, or exhumed soil may have been subjected to hundreds, thousands, or millions of years of exposure and to a variety of pedologic changes, including a number of different climatic conditions.
Louis Werner explains how Cisternas and everal colleagues studied samples plucked from buried soil
and sand in areas hardest hit by Chilean tremors.
There have been no known attempts to directly date either t he loess or the buried soil
Plans call for buried soil
cement to stabilize the banks of the river to meet flood control criteria.
Optically stimulated luminescence dating, a technique for estimating the last exposure of buried soil
to sunlight, confirms the site's radiocarbon dates, holds James K.
A further reason to consider the terraces the result of ancient agricultural practices is the presence of buried soil
with an abundance of pottery, which is thought to indicate soil improvement through organic manuring (Gaffney & Tingle 1989; Wilkinson 1989).
Beneath the upper buried soil
(unit e) roots are present, and the sand is mottled with iron staining indicative of a Bw horizon.
A buried soil
was found at the toes of the most inland of the back dunes but it was not possible to collect sufficient material for radiocarbon analysis.
The two mounds of sub-period 2 (SHII, no 6 and the Isolated Mound N2) are confined to the first half of the third millennium BC, and the one mound of sub-period 3 (SHII, no 7) is dated by carbon in the buried soil
to the later third millennium BC.
age from a buried soil
overlain by pebbly sand may be interpreted as a transgression of Lake Algonquin.
The basal buried soil
in these dunes is developed on lake plain sediments and buried by eolian sand.
