Description of soil BCFBGglo~~A (FAIRBRIDGE)

General Characteristics
Classification GLE.DYB

Gleyed Eluviated 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 Non growing season

The water table is present in the soil during the non growing season.

Root restrictions Sixth layer

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

Type of root restricting layer Undifferentiated

Undifferentiated

Drainage Imperfectly drained

Water is removed from the soil sufficiently slowly in relation to supply, to keep the soil wet for a significant part of the growing season. Excess water moves slowly downward if precipitation is the major supply. If subsurface water or groundwater, or both, is the main source, the flow rate may vary but the soil remains wet for a significant part of the growing season. Precipitation is the main source if available water storage capacity is high; contribution by subsurface flow or groundwater flow, or both, increases as available water storage capacity decreases. Soils have a wide range in available water supply, texture, and depth, and are gleyed phases of well drained subgroups.


Parent Materials
Mode of Deposition Texture Chemical properties
Marine

Unconsolidated deposits of clay, silt, sand, or gravel that are well to moderately well sorted and well to moderately well stratified (in some places containing shells). The deposits have settled from suspension in salt or brackish water bodies or have accumulated at their margins through shoreline processes such as wave action and longshore drift. Nonfossiliferous deposits may be judged marine if they are located in an area that may reasonably be considered to have contained salt water at the time the deposits were formed.

Medium

Medium (USDA Texture Classes: VFSL,L,SIL,SI,GL,GSIL).

Medium Acid to Neutral

pH 5.6 - 7.4
