Description of soil SKCHC13~~~A (CHAPLIN CA.BC)
|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 not present in the soil at any time.
|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||Very rapidly drained
Water is removed from the soil very rapidly in relation to supply. Excess water flows downward very rapidly if underlying material is pervious. There may be very rapid subsurface flow during heavy rainfall provided there is a steep gradient. Soils have very low available water storage capacity (usually less than 2.5 cm) within the control section and are usually coarse textured, or shallow, or both. Water source is precipitation.
|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.
Very Coarse (USDA Texture Classes: VCS,CS,S,GS,CBS).
|Moderately / Very Strongly Calcareous
