Description of soil BCHTT~~~~~N (HUTTON)
|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||Unspecified period
The water table is present in the soil during an unspecified period.
|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
|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.
|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 (%)
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 (USDA Texture Classes: FS,LCS,LS,LFS,GLS,CBLS).
|Medium Acid to Neutral
pH 5.6 - 7.4
