Description

Four soil map units from the flood plains of the Saco and Androscoggin rivers were sampled at five locations each. Soil morphology was described at each site, and samples of the soil were taken for later laboratory analyses. Chemical and physical properties of the soil were analyzed in the laboratory. The morphologic and laboratory data are presented for each pedon sampled and as summaries using weighted means of laboratory data for each soil map unit. Organic carbon measurements are presented at other sites of similar drainages and positions to demonstrate the variable carbon content.
