Soil Maps

  1. All SSURGO organic soil map units are listed as hydric soils, and within the study area, all alluvial soils are listed as hydric.

  3. We used the SSURGO digital spatial database for Rhode Island developed in 1996 ( USDA, 1998) to compare soil map unit attributes with field results.

Soil Survey

  1. A current soil map produced by conventional soil survey is the major source of soil information.
  2. The detailed soil map units describe the soils that are delineated on the soil maps located at the back of the soil survey. (Web site)

Map Units

  1. Soil map units are named for the one or more soil series that dominate the unit.
  2. The SSURGO database classified the 100 study sites into 25 different soil map units.
