Soil Series

9.27 CHINA CLAY SLURRY (sCC) (5016)

Major soil group: 09 made ground soils Soils formed in a significant thickness of either artificial man-made material or former soil material or geological substrate that has undergone mechanical removal, transport and replacement.
Soil Group: 2 raw made ground soils Soils that EITHER, have no superficial organic-enriched layers more than 5 cm thick OR, if superficial organic-enriched layers are more than 5 cm thick, contain insufficient organic matter to give an average of 1% (0.6% organic carbon) over the upper 15 cm OR, are permanently wet within 20 cm of the surface. Such soils have no, sparse, or very recent vegetative cover and low biomass because of their recent emplacement or waterlogged condition.
Soil Subgroup: 7 permanently wet raw made ground soils Formed in material that has remained saturated with water since it was emplaced and are defined as being saturated and unripened, below 20 cm depth. Although they may dry out seasonally in their upper layers, they remain wet within 20 cm depth throughout most years. Permanently wet soils usually occur in man-made ponds, lakes or reservoirs.
Soil Series: light loamy china clay waste
