Description of soil ABCLL~~~~~A (CLEARDALE)

General Characteristics
Classification GL.GL

Gleyed Gray Luvisol

Profile Agricultural soil profile

The soil has been disturbed by agriculture.

Kind of material Mineral

The soil material is primarily composed of mineral particles.

Water table Never

The water table is not present in the soil at any time.

Root restrictions No root restricting layer

The growth of plant roots is not restricted by any soil layer.

Type of root restricting layer n/a

Not Applicable

Drainage Moderately well drained

Water is removed from the soil somewhat slowly in relation to supply. Excess water is removed somewhat slowly due to low perviousness, shallow water table, lack of gradient, or some combination of these. Soils have intermediate to high water storage capacity (5-6 cm) within the control section and are usually medium to fined textured. Precipitation is the dominant water source in medium to fine textured soils; precipitation and significant additions by subsurface flow are necessary in coarse textured soils.


Parent Materials
Mode of Deposition Texture Chemical properties
Glaciolacustrine

Used where there is evidence that the lacustrine materials were deposited in contact with glacial ice. One of the following characteristics must be present:

  • kettles or an otherwise irregular surface that is neither simply the result of normal settling and compaction in silt nor the result of piping
  • slump structures resulting from loss of support caused by melting of retaining ice
  • presence of numerous ice-rafted stones in the lacustrine silts.

Very Fine

Very Fine (USDA Texture Classes: HC (more than 60% clay).

Weakly Calcareous

< 6 CaCO3 equivalent (%)
