Regosols


regosol_landscape_smallRegosolic soils are weakly developed soils. They do not have a B horizon that is thicker than 5 cm (this is their diagnostic feature) and may even lack an A horizon. The reasons for this can be the following: youthfulness of the material, recent alluvium, nature of parent material (pure quartz sand), dry and cold climate, colluvium on steep slopes, etc.
