Nikolay Achkov, Simeon Nedyalkov, Ilia Iliev, Nikolay Popov, Rositsa Ilieva
Abstract: The Umbrisols profiles formed in the alpine woodless Balkan Mountains zone was investigated. The contemporary soil formation process takes place in cold, humid alpine climate conditions, in strong acid environment (acid rocks and mesophyte grass vegetation, produces residue of acid pH. In this environment the soil freezing is shallow, relatively short, the soil weathering processes are slightly intensive, occur in aerobic conditions, forming undeveloped profiles with horizons morphologic sequence type of (Аh-А-АС-D) on the summit and (Аh-А-АC-СD-D) on the adjoining slopes.
