Abstract

RECENTLY a fairly well preserved podsol was found buried beneath glacial deposits at Teindland, Morayshire (map ref. O.S. 299566). Briefly, the section shows at the top a semi-podsol developed in 6–8 ft. of sandy till and outwash gravel overlying a fossil iron podsol developed in glacio-fluvial outwash. The upper part of the buried soil which originally was the organic and leached layers has been transformed to thin bands of black, dark grey and light grey material. This banding has most likely been produced by solifluxion.
