Soil Profile Diagram?

Answer

Just like skin, soil has a profile and layers. Several diagrams both color and black and white are available. The topsoil layer is considered to be the top two layers under the grass layer. Under that is the subsoil. Breaking it down even further, the leaching area is also the topsoil area. Accumulation occurs in the subsoil layer. Under that is the weathering and bedrock layers. Agricultural soil is considered to be the topsoil and subsoil layers. Engineering soil takes place in the weathering, bedrock, and lower layers of soil.
