Surname 1 Name Professor Course Date Introduction The study of pedogenic processes is a core concept in the process of exploring soil evolution. In which case, exploring this concept gives an overview of the important processes required for the formation of soil in a given area. Because of the interaction of the pedogenic processes, the soil constituents are reorganized into visibly, chemically and distinct layer called horizons. Intuitively, five horizons make a soil profile: O, A, E, B, and C (Buol 67). The major objective of the lab was to measure and describe a soil profile in Murray and compare the result with NRCS mapped soil in the sample location. Specific goals To objectively measure a soil profile To measure color, texture and ped void features of a soil To collect soil samples To use web soil survey To work effectively in groups Procedure

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
