Description of Soils Having Disturbed or Discontinuous Horizons1
- R. F. Fisher and
- R. J. Miller2
The highly disturbed and discontinuous horizons of many podzolic soils make them difficult to describe, classify, and identify in the field. A method of differentiating such soils was used on three map units in Southern Ontario. The method required some modification because it failed to use discontinuity as a variable. The use of a disturbance index and a discontinuity index in describing soil series and map units with highly disturbed and/or discontinuous horizons is suggested.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
