The pedogenic process is affected by factors such as age of soil, primary minerals, and climate. The basic unit of soil science is the padon. It is defined as the smallest volume that can be recognized as a soil individual. Its lower limit is the vague Thomas E. Barnard 36 Table 11. Definitions of soil horizons (adopted from [30]) Category Name Description Organic 0 Organic horizons of mineral soils include horizons (I) formed or forming above the mineral part of mineral soil profiles: (2) dominated by fresh or partly decomposed organic material: and (3) containing more than 30% organic matter if the mineral fraction has no clay.

They are available in shapes that facilitate digging a deep, narrow hole. Sampling shovels are made of stainless steel and can be coated with rubber. Scoops are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials. The size should be selected so that one scoop full will contain more than one sample volume. Typical materials are stainless steel and polyethylene. When granular material is stockpiled it forms a cone shaped pile. Large particles tend to role to the bottom of the pile. Collection of a representative sample requires special consideration.

Soil textural classification systems. Soil science system developed by US Department of Agriculture and the engineering system is from the American Society of Testing and Materials. Adopted from [25] appreciate the fact that as soils are subjected to stress they can release water through consolidation and the hydraulic properties will change. This in turn has impact on the transport of constituents through the soil. Soil particles form larger aggregates with planes of weakness known as peds [26].
