Soil is a mixture of organic matter , minerals , gases , liquids , and organisms that together support life.
Soil can be categorised into sand, clay, silt, peat, chalk and loam types of soil based on the dominating size of the particles within a soil. Sandy Soil is light, warm, dry and tend to be acidic and low in nutrients. Sandy soils are often known as light soils due to their high proportion of sand and little clay clay weighs more than sand. These soils have quick water drainage and are easy to work with. They are quicker to warm up in spring than clay soils but tend to dry out in summer and suffer from low nutrients that are washed away by rain.
Soil hydrological properties have an important role in soil functions. Their predicted values are used in agronomic and hydrological models, which have wide ranges of analytical and planning applications. From the support of irrigation, soil management and plant breeding planning, to studies on the effect of land use or climate change, these models are applicable in nearly all fields, where soil and water interactions are considered. However the required data on soil hydrological properties to operate these models are often not available or difficult to measure. Therefore it is attractive to estimate these properties from soil information which is available, or easy to produce. Mathematical functions to estimate soil hydraulic parameters from basic soil information, such as soil texture, organic carbon content, bulk density etc.
All soils contain mineral particles, organic matter, water and air. Soil is made up of different-sized particles. Soil texture refers to the size of the particles that make up the soil and depends on the proportion of sand, silt and clay-sized particles and organic matter in the soil. Sandy soils feel gritty when rubbed between your fingers. Silts feel smooth — a little like flour. Most clays are sticky and mouldable.

A large belt of grey and brown Vertosols also run from the New South Wales border to Charters Towers—corresponding with Brigalow forests. This soil type is usually associated with previous volcanic activity and is mainly located along the Great Dividing Range. Large areas of these soils occur around Kingaroy and Atherton where they are used for intensive crop production. Dermosols are red, brown, yellow, grey or black and have loam to clay textures.
The particles that make up soil are categorized into three groups by size — sand, silt, and clay. Sand particles are the largest and clay particles the smallest. Most soils are a combination of the three. The relative percentages of sand, silt, and clay are what give soil its texture. A clay loam texture soil, for example, has nearly equal parts of sand, slit, and clay.
The physical properties of soils , in order of decreasing importance for ecosystem services such as crop production , are texture , structure , bulk density , porosity , consistency, temperature, colour and resistivity. At the next larger scale, soil structures called peds or more commonly soil aggregates are created from the soil separates when iron oxides , carbonates , clay, silica and humus , coat particles and cause them to adhere into larger, relatively stable secondary structures.
Сьюзан буквально онемела, когда эта страшная правда дошла до ее сознания. Северная Дакота - это Грег Хейл. Глаза ее не отрывались от экрана. Мозг лихорадочно искал какое-то другое объяснение, но не находил. Перед ее глазами было внезапно появившееся доказательство: Танкадо использовал меняющуюся последовательность для создания функции меняющегося открытого текста, а Хейл вступил с ним в сговор с целью свалить Агентство национальной безопасности.
- Какая правда. Стратмор тяжело дышал. - ТРАНСТЕКСТ.
- Увы, в мире полно наивных людей, которые не могут представить себе ужасы, которые нас ждут, если мы будем сидеть сложа руки. Я искренне верю, что только мы можем спасти этих людей от их собственного невежества. Сьюзан не совсем понимала, к чему он клонит. Коммандер устало опустил глаза, затем поднял их вновь.
