A layer of soil that can be distinguished from the surrounding soil by such features as chemical composition, color, and texture.
One of the layers of the soil profile, distinguished principally by its texture, color, structure and chemical properties."A" Horizon - the uppermost layer of the soil profile from which inorganic colloids and other soluble materials have been leached. It usually contains remnants of organic life."B" Horizon - The layer in a soil profile in which material leached from the overlying "A" horizon is accumulated."C" Horizon - Undisturbed parent material from which the overlying soil profile has been developed.
A layer of soil, approximately parallel to the land surface, that has distinct characteristics such as color, structure and texture. Described in shorthand form by letters such as A, B and C.
a layer , approximately parallel to the surface of the soil, distinguishable from adjacent layers by a distinctive set of properties produced by the soil-forming processes
a layer of soil, approximately parallel to the soil surface, with characteristics produced by soil-forming processes
a layer within a soil profile differentiated by chemical and physical characteristics
layers of mature soils
A layer of soil or soil material roughly parallel to the land surface and differing from adjacent, genetically related layers in physical, chemical, and biological properties or characteristics, such as color, structure, texture, consistence and degree of acidity or alkalinity.
A layer of soil that is nearly parallel to the land surface and is different from layers above and below.
A layer in soil or soil material developed through pedogenesis (the physical, chemical and biological factors that cause soil to evolve).
Distinct zones within a soil, distinguished from each other by factors such as chemical composition and organic content.
(3) a layer of soil or soil material roughly parallel to the land surface and differing from adjoining genetically related layers in physical, chemical, and biological properties or characteristics, such as color, structure, and texture.
a layer of distinctive color in the soil
A layer of soil or soil material approximately parallel to the land surface and differing from adjacent genetically related layers in physical, chemical, and biological properties or characteristics (e.g. color, structure, texture, etc.).
layer of soil developed in response to localized chemical and physical processes resulting from the activities of soil organisms, addition of organic matter, precipitation, and water percolation through the layer.
A distinct interface (surface or thin layer) in a stratigraphic sequence.
A layer of soil which can be distinguished from adjacent layers by characteristic physical properties such as texture, structure, or color, or by chemical composition.
A soil horizon is a specific layer in the soil.
