In this study, total carbon was measured rather than organic carbon, thus there is likely to be an influence of carbonates, particularly in the outer zones of the lakes where pedogenic carbonate segregations are common.
Interpretation: Features like its geometry, predominant red color and extensive pedogenic horizons suggest a flood basin origin in a well drained oxygenated environment for these mudstones (Wright and Tucker, 1991; Retallack,1997).
During the last decade the mobilization and accumulation of both amorphous and total pedogenic nonsiliceous iron, characteristic of pedogenetic weathering of ferri- and alumosilicates and argillization, decreased in the variants where calcareousness of fine earth had increased (Tables 5, 8, and 9).
Pedogenic horizons were identified and their mean depth and thickness were determined.
Nevertheless, in many soils of the humid tropics, gravels are chiefly composed of ironstone or petroplinthite, which are pedogenic by definition.
