130 Arid and Semi-Arid Soil Pedogenesis: Unraveling the Linkages Among Soil Genesis, Soil Mineralogy, and Quaternary Landscape Evolution: In Honor of B. L. Allen: I

Oral Session
S05 Pedology This session will discuss the relationships among soil formation and profile morphology, soil mineralogy, and Quaternary climatic variability as reflected in soil morphology in arid and semi-arid systems. Relationships between native vegetation and soils in these environments will also be of interest.
