Pedogenesis in an Archaeological Dark Earth – Mulatto Earth Catena over Volcanic Rocks in Western Amazonia, Brazil

Luís Antônio Coutrim dos Santos, Jane Kelly Silva Araujo, Valdomiro Severino de Souza Júnior, Milton César Costa Campos, Marcelo Metri Corrêa, Regilene Angélica da Silva Souza

ABSTRACT Archaeological Dark Earth (ADE) pedogenesis and pre-Columbian history are fundamental for understanding the biodiversity and pedodiversity of the Neotropical rainforest in the Amazon region. This study aimed to evaluate the morphological, physical, chemical, and mineralogical properties as well as NaOH-extractable organic matter [OM(NaOH)] in ADE and Mulatto Earth (ME) overlying volcanic rocks along a toposequence (four soil profiles) in western Amazonia, Brazil. The soil profiles show anthropic A horizons over an argic horizon (Bt) in the ADE (Humic, Pretic […]

Weathering of Rhyolites and Soil Formation in an Atlantic Forest Fragment in Northeastern Brazil

Stephany Alves Brilhante, Jean Cheyson Barros dos Santos, Valdomiro Severino de Souza, Jane Kelly Silva Araújo, Mateus Rosas Ribeiro, Marcelo Metri Corrêa

ABSTRACT Weathering and pedogenesis have been studied for a wide range of rocks and climates around the world. However, the eruption of rhyolitic magmas is a rare geological event, which leads to few studies associated with the rhyolite-soil-landscape relationship. In this context, this study evaluated the influence of rhyolite weathering on the properties of soils along a slope in an Atlantic Forest environment in the state of Pernambuco, northeastern Brazil. Four weathering profiles derived from rhyolites were classified and sampled […]

ABSTRACT Despite the considerable amount of information on the mineralogical characteristics of pedogenic Fe oxides in Brazilian soils, there are few studies on Fe-rich soils developed from mafic rocks with taxonomic identities at lower categorical levels. This study evaluated the mineralogical characteristics of pedogenic Fe oxides in B horizons (Bw) of Fe-rich Oxisols developed from several mafic rocks in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Bw horizons were sampled at a 0.8-1.0 m depth in 13 Ferric and Perferric […]

Physical, Macro- and Micromorphological Properties of Regosols in the Agreste Meridional Region of Pernambuco, Brazil

Alison Van Der Linden de Almeida, Marcelo Metri Corrêa, José Romualdo de Sousa Lima, Eduardo Soares de Souza, Kleber Régis Santoro, Antonio Celso Dantas Antonino

ABSTRACT Regosols in the Agreste Meridional region of Pernambuco, Brazil, are used for various agricultural activities, and prominent among them is production of common bean. An expressive variation is perceived in common bean crop yield, possibly associated with the presence of lamellae, which make for distinct water fluxes among these soils. The objective was to analyze the macro- and micromorphological, and physical characteristics of the Regosols located in the Agreste Meridional region of Pernambuco to understand the water fluxes in […]

IRON, SILICON, OR ALUMINUM FORMS, OR THEIR COMBINATION, IN THE GENESIS OF FRAGIPANS AND COHESIVE HORIZONS OF COASTAL TABLELANDS

Marcelo Metri Corrêa, João Carlos Ker, José Coelho de Araújo, Danilo de Lima Camêlo

01/Jul/2015

In the geomorphological unit of the Coastal Tablelands of Brazil there is a predominance of cohesive soil horizons and some with the presence of cemented horizons, commonly of the fragipan type. These horizons interfere with water dynamics, root growth, and, consequently, mineral nutrition of plants. The objective of this study was to use selective dissolution to evaluate the participation of forms of Fe, Si, or Al, or their combination, in the cohesion or cementation or both of fragipans and cohesive […]

SEQUENTIAL EXTRACTION OF PHOSPHORUS BY MEHLICH-1 AND ION EXCHANGE RESIN FROM B HORIZONS OF FERRIC AND PERFERRIC LATOSOLS (OXISOLS)

In general, Latosols have low levels of available P, however, the influence of the parent material seems to be decisive in defining the pool and predominant form of P in these soils. This study evaluated P availability by extraction with Mehlich-1 (M-1) and Ion Exchange Resin (IER), from samples of B horizons of Ferric and Perferric Latosols developed from different parent materials. To this end, in addition to the physical and chemical characterization of soils, 10 sequential extractions were performed […]
