Alderwood and Renton, for example, are the names of two soil series. All the soils in the United States having the same series name are essentially alike in those characteristics that affect their behavior in the undisturbed landscape. The Alderwood seriesconsists of moderately deep to a cemented pan, moderately well drained soils formed in glacial till. Alderwood soils are on glacially modified foothills and valleys and have slopesof 0 to 65 percent. The average annual precipitation is about 40 inches, and the mean annual temperature is about 50 degrees F. Alderwood, Kapowsin--densic contact at a depth of 50 to cm from the soil surface; on adjacent hills and ridges Baldhill --textures of loamy very fine sand, very fine sand, or finer with less than 35 percent clay in the fine earth fraction of the particle size control section; on terminal moraines. The Alderwood series consists of moderately deep, moderately well drained soils formed in glacial till. Alderwood soils are on glacially modified foothills and valleys and have slopes of 0 to 65 percent.

COMPETING SERIES: These are the Alderwood, Dabob, Hoodsport, Poulsbo, and Shelton series. Alderwood soils have a thin A1 horizon and lack and A2 horizon. Dabob soils have 50 to 70 percent rock fragments in the control section. Established Series Rev. AD/RJE 12/88 LYNNWOOD SERIES The Lynnwood series consists of deep, somewhat excessively drained soils formed in glacial outwash. Lynnwood soils are on glacial outwash terraces and have slopes of 0 to 90 percent. The average annual precipitation is 40 to 65 inches. The mean annual temperature is about 49 degrees F.   This book presents a comprehensive overview of the soils of Bangladesh. It is compiled by authors with vast experience in soil related problems and potential mitigation approaches. It discusses the development of Soil Science as an individual discipline in a country with limited resources and where soil plays a pivotal role for the economy; the formation of different agro-climatic regions; and /5(2). COMPETING SERIES: This is the Pinnebog series and the similar McMurray series. Pinnebog soils have a difference between mean winter and mean summer temperature of more than 30 degrees F and the soil reaction of Pinnebog soils are typically slightly alkaline. McMurray soils are dominantly hemic material in the subsurface tier.

ALDERWOOD Series Page 1 of 3 ALDERWOOD SERIES The Alderwood series consists of moderately deep to a cemented pan, moderately well drained soils formed in glacial till. Alderwood soils are on glacially modified foothills and valleys and have slopes of 0 to 65 percent. The average annual precipitation is about 40 inches, and the mean annual.   () are shown in Figures and Alderwood and Everett soils occur on glacial uplands and terraces, and are the most common and abundant soils in the project area. Norma, Indianola, Kitsap, Bellingham, Seattle, and Tukwila soils occur less extensively. Alderwood gravelly sandy loams are moderately well-drained soils that have. Characterization of Soils On 3 sites madrones grow on Alderwood series in which topsoil was disrupted by logging and development. Six sites are well drained, coarse loamy material that contain colluvium. Three of these are over sand (Ragnar series) and the other 3 (Plate ) at the Fort Lewis. Washington soil but the soils of this atlas can represent all Washington State soils. Soil series are named after geologic formations, geographic locations, and some soil names are “coined” or made up by soil scientists who describe, map, and correlate soils from within the National. 4.
