Resumen

ORGEIRA, M. J. et al. Environmental magnetism of a paleosoil in the Lujan Formation (Luján, Buenos Aires Province): comparison with other areas in the province and palaeoclimatic considerations. Rev. Asoc. Geol. Argent. [online]. 2002, vol.57, n.4, pp. 451-462. ISSN 0004-4822.

An environmental magnetic study of mainly fluvial "postpampean sediments" assigned to the Lujan Formation (Luján, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina) was carried out. The results obtained suggest a depletion of detrital ferromagnetic minerals during the pedogenetic processes. A characteristic magnetic signal can be distinguished in Holocene paleosols and soils of both eolian and fluvial "post-Pampean sediments" (Fm. Luján and Fm. La Postrera). This signal is analogous to that determined in loessic Pampean sediments assigned to the Buenos Aires Formation. It is inferred that the depletion of detrital ferromagnetic minerals is a general process in the Chacopampean area. This process may be associated with the genesis of a superparamagnetic fraction (SP), which could indicate dry periods during the climatic event. The depletion could also be associated with the genesis of a high coercitivy fraction, analogous with those determined in paleosols in the Pampean loess.
