is an ever-increasing recognition in Texas and nationally that soil
is a basic non-renewable resource of critical importance to the
economy and well being of society. Awareness of this resource has
enhanced the urgency for increased analytical data to document important
physical and chemical properties of soils so they
can be more accurately inventoried, classified and managed.
The TAMU Characterization
Lab functions as an integral support facility for faculty, graduate
students and the Texas Soil Survey Program. The intended audience includes
researchers, extension specialists, educators and service personnel
with expertise in soil resources. This data will provide baseline soils
information for those personnel conducting soil surveys, interpreting
the behavior and management of soils and utilizing these resources for
agriculture, ranching, forestry, residential development, road construction
and waste disposal.
This database starts
with the most recent pedons analyzed and will include older data
as it is translated from an earlier computer format. New data will
be added to this list as soils are analyzed and the results verified.
NOTE - All
classifications were obtained from the USDA/NRCS Soil Classification
database based on soil series name.
