DEVELOPMENT OF SOIL PROFILES IN CONTRASTING CLIMATES: A CASE STUDY FROM SOUTHERN INDIA

BENNO JOSEPH, THRIVIKRAMAJI K.P. AND SABU JOSEPH

Abstract

Formation of soil profiles is a complex process involving several factors viz., climate, parent rock, relief, organic activity and time and therefore results in diverse profiles. Among these, climate plays the dominant role. Development of soil profiles and their constituent horizons (in terms of their thickness) formed under two contrasting climatic set up, viz., tropical humid (Neyyar basin, Kerala) and semi-arid (Tambraparni basin, Tamil Nadu), with similar geological setting in southern India are detailed in this study.
