Subclasses:
Author:sim28v
Version:1.0
Notes:Material and mass of the earth or rock that do not show pedological development. They are not soils but typically underlie them. The substrate includes the R horizon and that part of the C horizon that shows no pedological development. The substrate beneath the soil may or may not be the parent material of the soil.
The Substrate is clearly related to the GeoSciML GeologicUnit. However, as the observations typically made on the substrate by soil scientists are different to those made by geologists, it is considered a separate class here. Future harmonization between domains should resolve these differences.

<<voidable>>geneticTypeGeneticTypeTerm1...1A genetic classification based on the 'Glossary of substrate mass genetic types" (p217ff).
This classification is most likely a subset of the IUGS-CGI lithology classification and a mapping between the terms used here and those by GeoSciML should be possible.

<<voidable>>observationMethodSoilObservationMethodTerm1...1ObservationMethod is a metadata snippet indicating how the feature was determined. ObservationMethod is a convenience property that provides a quick and dirty approach to observation metadata when data are reported using a feature view (as opposed to observation view). This property corresponds (loosely) to ISO19115 Lineage. (eg: digitised, Global Positioning System, published map, field observation, downhole survey, aerial photography, field survey, soil pit, existing vertical exposure, undisturbed soil core, auger boring, outcrop)
