In the previous chapters, we have shown how much the soils of Wisconsin have been influenced by the past climates that carry a signature in many of the properties and soil profiles that we observe. The glacial periods stand out, but the tropical climate of the Silurian and even the Cambrian left traces in the soils of Wisconsin. In this chapter, we summarize the main climatic influences including climatic projections for the future.
