Description of soil BCGOS~~~~~A (GOOSE)
|Profile||Agricultural soil profile
The soil has been disturbed by agriculture.
|Kind of material||Mineral
The soil material is primarily composed of mineral particles.
The water table is always present in the soil.
|Root restrictions||No root restricting layer
The growth of plant roots is not restricted by any soil layer.
|Type of root restricting layer||n/a
Water is removed so slowly in relation to supply that the soil remains wet for a comparatively large part of the time the soil is not frozen. Excess water is evident in the soil for a large part of the time. Subsurface flow or groundwater flow, or both, in addition to precipitation are the main water sources; there may also be a perched water table, with precipitation exceeding evapotranspiration. Soils have a wide range in available water storage capacity, texture, and depth, and are gleyed subgroups, Gleysols, and Organic soils.
|Mode of Deposition||Texture||Chemical properties|
Used where there is evidence that the lacustrine materials were deposited in contact with glacial ice. One of the following characteristics must be present:
Moderately Fine (USDA Texture Classes: SCL,FSCL,VFSCL,CL,SICL,GSCL,GL,CBCL).
< 6 CaCO3 equivalent (%)
