A traverse across a small first-order watershed in loess has been studied. The loess is Wisconsin in age and has a vertical tripartition that can be explained on a regional basis. Clear stratification is present in the middle loess increment. Moisture distribution patterns correlate highly with differences in particle-size distribution. The explanatory physical phenomena must be moisture-tension relationships.
