Description of soil BCBIHli~~~N (BIG WHITE)

General Characteristics
Classification SM.HFP

Sombric Humo-Ferric Podzol

Profile Native soil profile

The soil is in native condition (undisturbed by agriculture).

Kind of material Mineral

The soil material is primarily composed of mineral particles.

Water table Unspecified period

The water table is present in the soil during an unspecified period.

Root restrictions Fourth layer

The growth of plant roots is restricted by the fourth layer.

Type of root restricting layer Lithic

Lithic (consolidated bedrock)

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
Uppermost Colluvial

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.

Moderately Coarse

Moderately Coarse (USDA Texture Classes: VFS,LVFS,CSL,SL,FSL,GSL,CBSL,GFSL).

Undifferentiated

Undifferentiated acidity and/or calcareousness

Below Undifferentiated

Bedrock, undifferentiated
