soil welding

What is soil welding?

soil welding meaning in Soil Science terminology / glossary / dictionary is:
A process in which pedogenesis in a surface layer of parent rock or sediment feeds physicochemical and other imprints downward into a subjacent buried soil formed in a separate parent rock or sediment, leading to pedogenic ‘fusion’ of the two soils. Also referred to as pedogenic overprinting or pedogenic imprinting. (added 6/1/2000)
