The stratigraphic and regional distributions of paleosol morphology in latest Pennsylvanian through Early Permian strata in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma are presented in this paper. This regional extent corresponds to a paleolatitudinal gradient spanning ~5°S to 10°N. Morphological trends from this region delineate significant and systematic temporal and spatial changes in Permian-Carboniferous paleoenvironment and paleoclimate. The inferred latest Pennsylvanian (Virgilian) through early Early Permian environmental pattern is complex, but it indicates persistently dry, semiarid to arid conditions in Colorado, Utah, and Arizona, at paleolatitudes north of ~2°N, whereas lower paleolatitude (~2°S to 2°N) tropical regions in...
