Both soils show signs of illuviation and eluviation.

SP-1 is a much younger soil composed of

floodplain deposits (transported), while SP-2 is

a much older soil formed from weathered bedrock

on a ridge scraped clean by glaciers (formed in

place). SP-2 shows well defined horizons while SP-1 has poorly defined horizons.
