Soil Morphology, Genesis & Classification (SPS 350)
Many processes are responsible for transforming the accumulated parent material into soil horizons.. The exact combinations of these processes and reactions are however not known. a If the combination is dominated by a particular process, it is usually assigned a name. e.g., laterization, podzolization were commonly used as simplifications.
The pedogenic processes can be grouped into four. These are:
Each major pedogenic process is made up of a number of processes acting singly or in combination
