Abstract:
Six pedons derived from volcanic cinders from the San Francisco Volcanic Field near Flagstaff, Arizona, were studied to evaluate their physical, chemical, and mineralogical properties for inclusion in the proposed soil order Andisol. All the pedons meet the requirements for the Andic soil properties and they are thus classified as either Typic Ustivitrand or Melanic Ustivitrand Subgroups of Andisol Order. The proposed classification is discussed with respect to the guidelines presented in the ninth International Committee of Classification on Andisols (ICOMAND) letter.
