These colours are characteristic of gleying process, the reduction of ferric compounds under waterlogged
Gelic Regosol must have formed prior to its possible evolution into automorphic Calcaric Regosol under pine (described by rich pollen) and further into Gleyic Regosol and Gleysol under the increasing influence of gleying in the transition from the Younger Dryas to the Pre-Boreal.
Some gleying was also apparent in the irrigated soil that was not evident in the unirrigated soil.
