Description of soil BCMOE~~~~~A (MONROE)
|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||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|
These sediments generally consist of gravel and sand with a minor fraction of silt and rarely of clay. The gravels are typically rounded and contain interstitial sand.
