Soil Piping Black Mountains
Soil Piping Black Mountains
It does exist I looked for this in 1978, which was the original task from aerial rill patterns, thought I saw some on the lower slope same aspect, however pipes and ditches cut are very similar on occasion, then Rhiangoll side reveals deep soil piping high flow 2011 but that is rubble at the castle so possibly artificial, but this is the terrace of soil slips Gospel Pass, incised by track so the soil section reveals a layer at least one of buried peat surface and possible clayey material at the base. Black Mountains clearly shows sub terrace in Fechan and here and the upslope of this soil is a basin run of flush wash with other pipes and drainage of the upslope groundwater. So not all Black Mountains in Dittonian Downtonian hydrogeology, some of it is soil wash, however due the ranker soils I suspect all the piping is in terrace regolith on slope base.
