Soil Series

9.24 SLATE QUARRY RUBBLE (uSR) (5030)


Definition
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: 4 well aerated raw made ground soils Permeable or moderately permeable soils (Hollis, 1989) that are not wet within 70 cm for more than 90 days nor within 40 cm for more than 30 days in most years. Well aerated soils are free draining and relatively easily rootable to at least 40 cm depth, but have a significant leaching potential.
Soil Series: skeletal material over lithoskeletal mudstone and sandstone or slate
