About SoilHide

Name:
Etymol: Latin solum, ground.
i. All unconsolidated materials above bedrock. This is the meaning of the term as used by early geologists and in some recent geologic reports, and has been vigorously advocated by Legget (1967, 1973). It is the common usage among engineering geologists (see, e.g., compaction; soil mechanics). In recent years the approx. syn. regolith has come into wide geological use.

Ref: AGI

ii. The natural medium for growth of land plants.

Soils can be subdivided by texture or following a more formal taxonomy based on a wider set of their parameters.
