Abstract:
Chronosequences of Israel soils are summarized. Soil development in the coastal plain is related to the time of the dune deposits while those of the inland valley is related to the formation of the sedimentological terraces. Soil development in the mountains is related to the features and stability of the slope. The properties of young soils resemble those of the parent material. With advancing development the soils are affected by various processes, among them also the accretion of aeolian dust. Leaching is significant already at early stages; in some cases like Hamra and Terra-rossa soils the leaching stage is more advanced in earlier stages than in the final stage of soil development. In advanced stages of soil development the effect of the underlying rock on soil properties is reduced. At the final stage soils on moderate relief in the same climatic zone on different bedrocks resemble each other. This is attributed mainly to the effect of the aeolian dust accretion. The final stage of soil development on moderate relief consists of Grumusols in the northern parts of Israel, grumic dark Brown soils in the semi-arid parts of central Israel, loessial light Brown clay loam and loessial Serozems in the arid parts of the northern Negev and Regs in the extremely arid areas of the Southern Negev and Sinai. Petrocalcic horizons are developed on slopes and terraces where the rate of soil erosion equals that of accumulation of aeolian dust. The formation of petrogypsic horizons in the extremely arid zones is restricted to areas where erosion is negligible. The final stages of soil development exhibit a clear climatic zonality. This zonality differs from the soil zonality in the USSR and the USA due to the special features of dust accretion on the soils of Israel. © 1983.

Chronosequences of Israel soils are summarized.
