Description: Describes methods for predicting lithologies present in soils developed on glacial till, and the potential weathering contributions from rock particles >2 mm in diameter. The methods are not quantitative in terms of providing weathering rates, but provide information that can further the understanding of forest nutrient cycles, and possibly assist with decisions about forest harvesting.
Keywords: weathering rate, soil formation, nutrient cycling
