Short summary
Amazonian podzol soils store huge amounts of carbon and play a key role in transferring organic matter to the Amazon River. We modelled their formation by constraining both total carbon and radiocarbon. We found that the most waterlogged zones of the podzolized areas are the main source of dissolved organic matter found in the river network. The genesis time calculated considering the more likely settings runs to around 15–25 and 150–250 kyr for young and old podzols, respectively.
