Structure, soil

Jump to navigationJump to search

The combination or arrangement of primary soil particles into secondary particles, units, or peds. These peds may be, but usually are not, arranged in the profile in such a manner as to give a distinctive characteristic pattern. The peds are characterized and classified on the basis of size, shape, and degree of distinctness into classes, types, and grades. See also structure classes, soil; structure grades, soil; and structure types, soil. These are defined and tabulated under structure types, soil (Table 3).
