two million years of Earth history - the Quaternary Period - in the region now occupied by the. Calcic soils are commonly developed in Quaternary sediments throughout the arid and semiarid parts of the southwestern United States.

In alluvial chronosequences, these soils have regional variations in their content of secondary calcium carbonate (CaCO 3) because of (1) the combined effects of the age of the soil, (2) the amount, seasonal distribution, and concentration of Ca ++ in rainfall.

Since the publication of Broecker’s paper in “The Quaternary of the United States,” the use of isotopes in geologic research has increased vastly.

Large amounts of radioactive isotopes produced in the atmosphere by nuclear weapons tests resulted in the rapid improvement of detection techniques for studying and monitoring fallout.

This book is the second of three volumes in which the recent knowledge of the extent and chronology of Quaternary glaciations has been compiled on a global scale.

This information is seen as a fundamental requirement, not only for the glacial community, but for the wider user-community of general Quaternary workers.

In particular the need for accurate ice-front positions is a basic requirement.Comparison of the marine oxygen isotope record, the eustatic sea level record, and the chronology of glaciation in the United States of America David S. Fullerton, Gerald M.
