Long-term biogenic soil mixing and transport in a hilly , loess-mantled landscape : Blue Mountains of southeastern Washington

a r t i c l e i n f o In soil-mantled landscapes, downslope sediment transport occurs via disturbance-driven processes that vary with climate and vegetation change. To help constrain the long-term (≫10 yr) pattern and rate of soil mixing and transport in forests, we analyzed the distribution of tephra grains in soil along a hillslope transect in the Blue Mountains, SE Washington. Deposited within a loess mantle, tephra associated with Mt. Mazama (7.7 cal. kyr B.P.) serves as a marker bed for… CONTINUE READING
