Genesis of soils on two stream terrace levels on the Tennessee River



Genesis of soils on two stream terrace levels on the Tennessee River



Soil Survey Horizons 34(3): 78-88



Soils on two stream terrace levels along the Tennessee River, south of Knoxville, TN, were studied to evaluate genesis of stream terrace soils representative of the Southern Appalachian Ridge and Valley major land resource area. The soils on the lower terrace were described and sampled to a depth of about 12 ft, and on the upper terrace to about 17 ft. Iron oxides and particle size variation with depth indicate that these soils formed during several periods of deposition.
