The research was carried out in the hilly landscape in the Buskerud region, south Norway. The following soil toposequence was stated, beginning from the top of the slope: Epigleyic Pheozem (Siltic) – Cumullinovic Pheozem (Endosiltic) – Epigleyic Pheozem (Skeletic Endosiltic) – Cumullinovic Pheozem (Siltic) – Mollic Gleysol (Siltic). The soils had a silt loam and sandy loam texture with a substantial admixture of gravel. The material was poorly sorted with a lepto – and platykurtic texture distribution. The amounts of organic matter, organic carbon, as well as total nitrogen and phosphorus did not show catenal changes.
