Soil types are defined by their profile, or sequence of layers (horizons).The nature of horizons is due to the action of the main soil-forming process(es) operating in that soil type. Most soils have A, B and C horizons; podsol are typified by changes in the B horizon, lithomorphic soils do not have a B horizon; peats only have O horizons.

Soil classificationis the separation of soil into classes or groups each having similar characteristics and potentially similar behaviour. A classification for engineering purposes should be based mainly on mechanical properties, e.g.

permeability, stiffness, strength. The class to which a soil belongs can be used in its description. The Welsh Soils Discussion Group was set up to encourage discussion and interest in the study of soils in Wales.

The group provides an oportunity for British Society of Soil Science members and others with an interest in soil from different institutions/ industry to meet and discuss problems and topics of common interest. material to another.
