Description of soil BCEUC~~~~~N (EUNICE)

General Characteristics
Classification HU.FO

Humic Folisol

Profile Native soil profile

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

Kind of material Organic

The soil material is primarily composed of organic particles.

Water table Never

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

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 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 Forest Peat

This class is used for forest peatcovered or forest peat-filled areas where the water table is at or above the peat surface. The dominant peat materials are shallow to deep mesic to humic forest and fen peat formed in a eutrophic environment resulting from strong water movement from the margins or other mineral sources.

Humic

Humic

Extremely / Strongly Acidic

pH < 5.6

Middle 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.

Coarse

Coarse (USDA Texture Classes: FS,LCS,LS,LFS,GLS,CBLS).

Extremely / Strongly Acidic

pH < 5.6

Lowest Igneous, acidic

Igneous, acidic bedrock (dominantly granite)
