CJ SCHEDULE
WEEKS 1-15

Soil characteristics:
mineral constituents, particle size, types of humus, plant nutrients, ion exchange and soil pH.

 

 

 

 

(Study via soil profile/horizons.)
A/B/C soil horizons. Minerals chemically resistant
(e.g. quartz, mica).
· %sand, silt, clay (soil texture)
· The clay micelle ability to absorb water and absorb positive/negative charged ion

· Organic matter: origin (e.g. leaf matter); decomposition (soil fauna bacteria, fungi); L/F/H layers; mull, mor, moder types; links with soil structure at formation of peds.
Cation exchange impact on soil acidity (definition of pH) and leaching.
Triangular graphs.

Changes in soil characteristics and profiles resulting from:
· leaching, gleying, podsolisation and calcification to he studied through:

brown earths; gley soils; podzols; rendzinas.

Soil character and profiles t include variations in:
colour;
chemical content;
humus;
texture;
structure.

· 4 soil types to be discussed in terms of:
process;distribution;physical environment; rock type; time, scale etc..
 

The effect of human activity on soil characteristics and profiles.

 

· Erosion and degradation: removal of vegetation; irrigation and salinisation; farming practices (ploughing, soil compaction, fertiliser application); soil erosion.
· Upgrading of soils:
afforestation/wind breaks; farming practices (cover crops, rotation, irrigation, drainage, marling fertilisation etc.); contour ploughing and terracing.
