Abstract

Soil associations of different geomorpholocical units of a younger-moraine area in Schleswig-Holstein (NW Germany) considering matter fluxes As result of a detailed mapping work, the soil association of different geomorpholocical units of a younger-moraine area (“Stormarner Jungmoränengebiet”) in Schleswig-Holstein (NW Germany) is analyzed taking into account soil development in vertical and horizontal direction. The consequences for classification of soil types and soil associations are discussed. We distinguished between different patterns of matter fluxes (unilateral coupling, mutual coupling, no coupling of soils). By morphometric analysis of the relief, five geomorpholocical units were distinguished: till-plains with dead-ice kettles (I), tongue-like basin with moraine slopes (II), terminal-push moraine (III), moraine slopes with gutter valley (IV), und terminal-push moraine valley with steep slopes (V). In the examination area with its intense agricultural land use, the regular sequence of erosion and accumulation of soils is a typical consequence of unilateral water-flow direction. Thus, the truncated Stagnic Luvisols/Anthrosols association is dominating. We suggest to classify the truncated Luvisol with a Bt horizon exposed directly to the surface at the level of soil subtypes in the German soil-classification system.
Additionally soils in depressions such as Calcic Gleysols, Histosols and “subhydric soils”, which are influenced by solute and solid-matter input, are frequently encountered. Within the till-plains, a compensation of the relief by (historical) soil erosion took place, recognizable by the high percentage of Anthrosols (20 %). Therefore, no recent lateral transport of solid material can be found. The steep moraine slopes partly already show Regosols, thus indicating a high erosion potential (erosion rate for geomorphical unit IV: 13 t ha–1 y–1). In the depressions intersected with small streams, the depressions intersected with small streams, the afflux caused by mills led to an additional peat development
