Description of soil BC$TA~~~~~N (TALUS)
|Profile||Native soil profile
The soil is in native condition (undisturbed by agriculture).
|Kind of material||True Non-soil
This is a true non-soil (e.g. airport or lake).
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
Water is removed from the soil rapidly in relation to supply. Excess water flows downward if underlying material is pervious. Subsurface flow may occur on steep gradients during heavy rainfall. Soils have low available water storage capacity (2.5-4 cm) within the control section, and are usually coarse textured, or shallow, or both. Water source is precipitation.
|Mode of Deposition||Texture||Chemical properties|
Massive to moderately-well stratified, nonsorted to poorly sorted sediments with any range of particle sizes from clay to boulders that have reached their present position only by direct, gravity-induced movement. Processes include slow displacements such as creep and solifluction and rapid movements such as earth flows.
Coarse Skeletal (USDA Texture Classes: VGS, VGLS).
|Medium Acid to Neutral
pH 5.6 - 7.4
