Description of soil BCKOB01~~~N (KOBES CREEK)

General Characteristics
Classification GLBR.GL

Gleyed Brunisolic Gray Luvisol

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 Compact Till

Compact (Basal) Till

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
Uppermost 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.

Medium

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

Extremely / Strongly Acidic

pH < 5.6

Below Till (Morainal)

Morainal material (till) deposited by glacial ice: a mixture of boulders, sand, silt, and clay.

Fine

Fine (USDA Texture Classes: SC,SIC,C,GSIC).

Undifferentiated

Undifferentiated acidity and/or calcareousness
