Soil classification considered in the light of geology and petrography.



Soil classification considered in the light of geology and petrography.



Neues Jb. Geol. Mh, 3/4: 155-171



The soil can be considered as a polydisperse system of particles from 2 mm diameter to colloidal and Angstrom-disperse size, capable of cation exchange and composed of residues and products of siallitic or biogenic surface weathering and decomposed organic matter; it extends down to the lowest level of the water table or to the zone of cementation. The various systems and factors of soil classification are reviewed.
