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).
changes in the quantity and distribution of textural and chemical soil constituents during thirty years.
Such a scalar does not work so well in the case of wet mineral soils, as here the hydrological conditions overshadow the normal pedogenetic
However, the area typically has considerable differences in its characteristics, especially in regard to soil type, due to pedogenetic
processes and factors of soil formation (SOUZA et al.
processes have acted during the development of the soils.
The dominant pedogenetic
processes that formed the soils were the following: structure formation, organic matter accumulation, loss of bases and acidification, desilication, fast weathering, and the formation of noncrystalline (short-range order) minerals and gibbsite.
After biological rehabilitation, it can develop into a soil as a result of contemporary pedogenetic
processes that take place under direct human observation.
Micromorphological analysis of sediment samples suggests pedogenetic
transformation of loess deposits with a possible dung component.
At the end of the 1990s we carried out recurrent studies in some areas of the International Biological Programme to establish contemporary pedogenetic
changes in several soil types (Reintam 1999, 2000, 2001a).
These authors recommended using second or higher order polynomial equations with great caution because the resulting complex curves cannot confidently be linked to any pedogenetic
It means that terrestrial processes during different stages of the Baltic Sea have great geological, pedogenetic

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.
