Rhode Island State Soil Introduction Many states have a designated state bird, flower, fish tree, rock, etc. For example, the Rhode Island state bird is the Rhode Island Red, the state flower is the Violet, and the state tree is the Red Maple.

And, the Narragansett Silt Loam is the (unofficial) state soil of Rhode Island. Certain other characteristics within the soil form are then applied to define the soil series.

The full background is given in the introduction to the Binomial System. This classification system was refined in and published as: “Soil Classification – a Taxonomic System for South Africa” (known as the “blue book”).

RI Site Specific Soil Mapping Standards and Procedures Rhode Island Soil Survey •They represent the field data from the data sheet in the same way a soil series symbol is used (Ef = Enfield silt loam etc) •This allows the maps created to show useful data.

The most common is the Unified Soil Classification System, with three major groups: (1) coarse-grained, sands and gravels, (2) fine-grained, silts and clays, and (3) highly organic soils (referred to as peat even when the soil is not truly a peat).

The first two groups are then subdivided as follows.

Introduction. Soil Classification Systems have been developed to provide scientists and resource managers with generalized information about the nature of a soil found in a particular general, environments that share comparable soil forming factors produce similar types of soils.
