The distribution pattern of soils in Alberta is strongly linked to climate and parent materials. Climate affects the location of different soil groups. The driest area in southeastern Alberta is represented by the presence of Brown Chernozems. As one proceeds north and west, the soils and associated vegetation reflect the increase in available moisture.In Alberta, Organic soils generally occur in association with Luvisolic soils. These soils form under wet conditions where the organic layer (greater than 30% organic matter) accumulates faster than it decomposes. The organic layer varies in thickness from 40 to 160+ cm, and under natural conditions, the water table is at or near the surface. In some areas of the province, Organic soils may be artificially drained and used for agricultural production. This resource was created in 2002 using ArcGIS. purpose: To show where soils types occur. This provides a broad scale overview of the general landscape characteristics, management options and limitations as related to agricultural production potential. Soils have been classified and grouped base on their similar properties and the factors that contributed to their formation. Familiarity with the soil group of a particular area provides a broad scale overview of the general landscape characteristics, management options and limitations as related to agricultural production potential. status: MD_ProgressCode: completed resourceMaintenance: MD_MaintenanceInformation: maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: MD_MaintenanceFrequencyCode: asNeeded descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Alberta type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: place descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Chernozemic soils keyword: Luvisolic soils keyword: Brunisolic soils keyword: Cryosolic soils keyword: soil classification keyword: soil management type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: theme thesaurusName: CI_Citation: title: Agrovoc date: CI_Date: date: 2016-01-21 dateType: CI_DateTypeCode: revision citedResponsibleParty: missing descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Downloadable Data thesaurusName: uuidref: 723f6998-058e-11dc-8314-0800200c9a66 resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: useConstraints: MD_RestrictionCode: license otherConstraints: Your use of this information will be governed by the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta, in force as of the date you accessed the information , found at http://open.alberta.ca/licence resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: accessConstraints: MD_RestrictionCode: otherRestrictions otherConstraints: To access the data you must agree to the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta found at http://open.alberta.ca/licence resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: useLimitation: Distribution Liability: Under the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta, the Information is licensed as is, and the Information Provider excludes all representations, warranties, obligations, and liabilities, whether express or implied, to the maximum extent permitted by law.
