Description of soil BCDWOg~~~~A (DASHWOOD)

General Characteristics
Classification DU.DYB

Duric Dystric Brunisol

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 Unspecified period

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

Root restrictions Fifth layer

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

Type of root restricting layer Duric

Duric horizon

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 Glaciofluvial

Material moved by glaciers and subsequently sorted and deposited by streams flowing from the melting ice. The deposits are stratified and may occur in the form of outwash plains, deltas, kames eskers, and kame terraces. See also glacial drift and till.

Coarse Skeletal

Coarse Skeletal (USDA Texture Classes: VGS, VGLS).

Medium Acid to Neutral

pH 5.6 - 7.4

Below Till (Morainal)

Morainal material (till) deposited by glacial ice: a mixture of boulders, sand, silt, and clay.

Moderately Coarse

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

Medium Acid to Neutral

pH 5.6 - 7.4
