Description of soil BCKAPgvsv~N (KAPTARA)

General Characteristics
Classification O.HG

Orthic Humic Gleysol

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 Eighth layer

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

Type of root restricting layer Duric

Duric horizon

Drainage Poorly drained

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.


Parent Materials
Mode of Deposition Texture Chemical properties
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

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

Extremely / Strongly Acidic

pH < 5.6
