Soils are the product of a complex suite of chemical, biological, and physical processes. In spite of the importance of soils for society and for sustaining life on earth, our knowledge of soil formation rates and of the influence of biological activity on mineral weathering and geochemical cycles is still limited. In this paper we provide a description of the Damma Glacier Critical Zone...

The Jura Mountains are a perialpine chain bending from the SW to the NW of Switzerland. Alpine ice reached only marginal areas of this chain during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) but remaining erratic boulders of alpine origin indicate older glaciations of unknown age, tentatively correlated either with the classical Rissian or with the Most Extensive Glaciation. Presented here are the first...
