Brunisolic Gray Luvisol (BR.GL)
Common horizon sequence: LFH, Bm or Bf, Ae, Bt, BC, C or Ck
These soils have the properties specified for the Luvisolic order and the Gray Luvisol great group. They differ from Orthic Gray Luvisols by having in the upper solum, either a Bm horizon at least 5 cm thick with a chroma of 3 or more, or a Bf horizon less than 10 cm thick that does not extend below 15 cm. Such Bm or Bf horizons are thought to have developed in a former Ae horizon. These soils do not have a dark-colored Ah or Ahe horizon 5 cm or more in thickness.
Note: Diagnostic horizons are underlined.
