Description of soil BCCBN~~~~~N (COLUMBINE)

General Characteristics
Classification O.HFP

Orthic 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 Never

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

Root restrictions Sixth layer

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

Type of root restricting layer Lithic

Lithic (consolidated bedrock)

Drainage Well drained

Water is removed from the soil readily but not rapidly. Excess water flows downward readily into underlying pervious material or laterally as subsurface flow. Soils have intermediate available water storage capacity (4-5 cm) within the control section, and are generally intermediate in texture and depth. Water source is precipitation. On slopes subsurface flow may occur for short durations, but additions are equaled by losses.


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.

Medium Skeletal

Medium Skeletal (USDA Texture Classes: VGSL, VGL).

Moderately / Very Strongly Calcareous

6 - 40 CaCO3 equivalent (%)

Below Calcareous

Calcareous bedrock (dominantly sandstone and shale)
