The development of these highs is further supported by the presence of pedogenetic profiles (laterites: Marini, 1984) in areas where the Genna Selole Fm is almost absent, while the first Middle Jurassic deposits are impure carbonates of the Ussassai-Perdasdefogu lithofacies; these are interpreted as the areas where the continental conditions persisted for a longer timespan.

Degree of weathering and pedogenetic implications Since both sites have closely similar climate and natural vegetation, the chemical characteristic of the parent material and relief appear to be the dominant factors that influenced the characteristics and formation of the two soils.
G and H), where the basal part, which rests paraconformably on the Verrucano Lombardo continental red beds locally through a surface bearing dolomitic nodules of probably pedogenetic origin, may be interpreted as deposited in fluvial and coastal environments, bordered by mud-dominated areas.
Striping appears to be sedimentary in origin, but earlier pedogenetic phenomena cannot be excluded either, as it has been described from France (Fichter et al.
At the 'big picture' level, there are two important published frameworks that have provided, for more than fifty years, the 'soil 101' conceptual frameworks for soil diversity and soil dynamics: the 'Clorpt' equation of Jenny (1941) and the pedogenetic theory of Simonson (1959).
