Abstract

Abstract

Fabric analysis using detailed soil maps and modal soil descriptions was made of two contrasting ground moraine terrains, with and without drumlins, respectively, in southeastern Wisconsin. Heterogeneity within soil bodies was acknowledged, but the landscapes were contrasted primarily on their distribution of soil mapping units. Comparison and reclassification was achieved by multivariate discriminant analysis procedures using 29 variables derived from consideration of 18 soil body characteristics. Results of the study also included population density of soil bodies; range in relief; relative dominances of soil drainage classes, of soils formed in alluvium and colluvium, of loess thickness classes among upland soils, and of soil series. These were characterized independently of the computer analysis.
