Sample text

Organic soils are divided into groups based on the degree to which plant fibers and material are decomposed. Fibrists (peats), hemists (mucky peats and peaty mucks), and saprists (muck) are organic hydric soils listed in increasing order of plant ©2001 CRC Press LLC material decomposition. Folists are the fourth group of organic soils, but they are not considered hydric soils because the organic component does not derive from long-term saturation or inundation (Tiner and Veneman, 1989). Mineral soils generally have less organic material in the upper part of the profile than organic soils and have different field indicators.

Together, the O and A horizons constitute the zone of maximum biological activity. The B horizon is characterized by the accumulation of silicates, clay, iron, aluminum, and humus, whereas the C horizon contains weathered material either similar or dissimilar to the parent material. Soil colors also provide critical information on soil wetness, and the degree of saturation and inundation. The Munsell Color Chart standardizes three aspects of color: hue, value, and chroma (Kollmorgen Corporation, 1975).

S. Army Corps of Engineers, 1992). The 1987 Corps Manual, which is the current manual guiding federal jurisdictional technical delineation, defines growing season as that portion of the year when soil temperatures at 50 cm below the soil surface are higher than biologic zero (5˚C). S. Army Corps of Engineers, 1992). Drainage classes are a significant criterion when determining the presence of hydric soils, as the soils relate to individual taxonomic groups (New England Hydric Soils Technical Committee, 1998; Smith, 1973; Tiner and Veneman, 1989).
