It is of interest, however, that a pronounced vermiculitization of illite has been observed even in non-acidic arctic tundra Gelisols of Northern Alaska (Borden et al.
Scientists from the US Geological Survey (USGS) examined the way in which permafrost soils, or Gelisols.
Gelisols are very cold soils with permanent frost within 100 centimeters of the soil surface.
The dominant suborders of Gelisols are Histels, Orthels, and Turbels (Table 3-5).
This system too continues to evolve, with changes like the addition of a twelfth soil order, the Gelisols, in 1998.
The other orders are: Alfisols, Andisols, Aridisols, Entisols, Gelisols, Histosols, Inceptisols, Oxisols, Spodosols, Ultisols and Vertisols.

Gelisols are ideal for the determination of gains and losses in soil mass and volume (Munroe and Bockheim.
In addition, for purposes of comparison, we used the FAO classification (FAO 1994), and the recently discussed new Gelisol order of the US Soil Taxonomy (ICOMPAS 1996), as well as the new World Reference Base for Soil Resources (Spaargaren 1994).
