Bottom soil horizon
The Al in ped al fer is the chemical symbol of the element aluminum, and the Fe in pedal fe r is the chemical symbol for iron. Mature soils are those which are old and well developed; immature soils are those which are new and not fully developed. Bedrock - The bottom layer is several feet below the surface. The thickness of each layer varies with location and conditions. A wind-transported sediment, usually light brown in colour. Soil scientists generally name these horizons from top to bottom "O," "A," "B," "C," and" R," and often subdivide them to reflect more specific characteristics within each layer. All together, these are called a soil profile figure 1.

Soil Secret Agents
Organic soils generally originate through the accumulation of plant materials organic soil. However, recent alluvial or aeolian deposits that retain fine stratification are not considered to be an A horizon unless cultivated. Generally, organic silt has an odour of decaying organic matter. Not surprising, they are rich in aluminum clays and iron oxides. Organic - The organic layer also called the humus layer is a thick layer of plant remains such as leaves and twigs. An acid sulphate soil is characterized by its great acidity pH less than 4 see Section 4.
1. General Background
An O layer may be at the surface of a mineral soil or at any depth beneath the surface if it is buried. The mineral fraction of such material is only a small percentage of the volume of the material and generally is much less than half of the weight. The physical properties of the soil stratum, from the surface of the ground to a depth of about 1. This layer is made primarily of clay, iron, and organic matter which accumulated through a process called illuviation. It consists of at least percent organic matter, the composition depending on the type of vegetation from which the organic material results. However, silt may be readily distinguished in the field from clay with the shaking test. In poor conditions, soil formation may take thousands of years!
An old name for a very uniform tropical soil, typical of the humid tropics. It is formed by loss of iron, fine clay, etc. Before you begin to build a pond, you have to do a soil survey to see if the site is satisfactory for pond building. Soil is an important resource. Most clay can be easily recognized because when it loses water it cracks and forms very hard lumps. These soils are often red in color from the iron oxides. The R layer is sufficiently coherent when moist to make hand digging with a spade impractical, although it may be chipped or scraped.
