Soil pictures

‚ÄčThis is a forum thread for NSCN members to share digital pictures, scanned photographs and slides with interesting or illustrative soil images. To get things started with a motivational yet easily surmounted challenge, I am offering up this poorly-framed picture of what is undoubtedly the most interesting soil in the world, a Spodosol of the Kalkaska series. This is the state soil of Michigan, and the photograph showing the beautifully-developed eluvial and spodic horizons was taken from one of the heavy lake-effect snowbelt regions of the Upper Peninsula. Research conducted and synthesized by Schaetzl (2002) in strong snow-gradient regions of lower Michigan demonstrate that large winter snowpacks are central to the genesis of this and other geographically associated soils.DSCN5598.JPGDSCN5598.JPG

Always got to be entralled by the beautiful and mysterious spodic subsoil.
