Isotope Geology

Radiogenic and strong isotopes are used extensively within the earth sciences to figure out the a while of rocks, meteorites and archeological items, and as tracers to appreciate geological and environmental tactics. Isotope tools ensure the age of the Earth, aid reconstruct the weather of the prior, and clarify the formation of the chemical components within the Universe.

The current ground surface (K0) is characterized by erosion and deposition with no active soil formation. Erosion is cutting channels into underlying K1 and K2 land surface deposits. The K1s cycle is characterized by soil development on depositional and erosional surfaces. Soils are weakly developed with A/C profiles. The K1 cycle is characterized by limited deposition of a thin mantle over slopes and deposition of weakly sorted and nonbedded sediment in upper stream channels. The K1u cycle is characterized by limited truncation of K2 soils and slight stream incision.

Soils at the base of the slope were thick as a result of slope wash and loess transportation from higher slopes. Soils were also typically clay-rich in their upper parts but sandy at depth. Clay mineralogy in these locations was dominated by smectites due to poor drainage. All of the soils lacked accumulation of salts or carbonates due to winter wet season leaching. Catenas developed on granitic slopes in tropical arid environments typically display a concentration of kaolinite on upper slopes and montmorillonite on lower slopes in association with calcium carbonate accumulation.
