Class Summary

<<CodeList>>AggradationTermterms indicating the presence of material deposited on a pre-existing surface as a result of wind and/or water erosion (p138)
<<DataType>>ErosionErosion is not 'natural erosion' but the accelerated erosion that follows the destruction or loss of protective cover resulting from human influence on the soil, vegetation or landform. It may be difficult to distinguish from natural erosion. (p134)
<<CodeList>>ErosionDegreeTermTerms to describe the degree of erosion.
From ASLS p134-138.
<<CodeList>>ErosionStateTermTerms to describe the state of erosion (eg active, stabilised, partly stabilised) p134
<<CodeList>>ErosionTypeTermTerms to describe the state of erosion (eg active, stabilised, partly stabilised) p134
<<CodeList>>GeomorphologicalActivityTermGeomorphological activities that are either gradational (eg eroded, aggraded) or anti-gradational (eg elevated, excavated, subsided) p30
<<CodeList>>GeomorphologicalAgentTermTerms to describe The agent responsible for generating the Geomorphological activities (eg gravity, wind, ice, human) p31
<<CodeList>>GeomorphologicalStatusTermTerms to describe the status of the Geomorphological activities (eg continuously active, seldom active, relict) p55
<<DataType>>GeomorphologyThe geomorphological modes and agents that generated the observed landform element.
<<DataType>>InundationFlooding due to overbank flow, local runon and overland flow.
<<FeatureType>>LandformDescription of the Landform for land use planning, enable extrapolation of point soil observations, help predict land degradation following land use and identify the relevant part of the terrain (ASLS p15).

These include the landform patterns and elements of interest to soil scientists, such as pattern classification, site disturbance and genesis.

A landform in the soil sciences is largely defined by its surface form and location in the landscape, as part of the terrain, and as such, is typically an element of the topography or a geomorphology unit.

<<DataType>>LandformClassificationClassification of the Landscape Feature based on its relief, modal slope, landform pattern.
<<CodeList>>LandformClassificationTermterms to describe the landform patterns.
to come from a controlled vocabulary.
An example set of terms is provided in ASLS Field Handbook pp58-72
(alluvial fan, alluvial plain, anastomatic plain, ...)
<<DataType>>LandformElementDescribes the geometry (shape) of the landform in a radius of 20m
<<CodeList>>LandformMorphologyTermTerms to describe the types of landform element morphologies (eg crest, hillock, ridge, flat, open depression). p19
<<CodeList>>LandformPatternTermRelief and modal slope categories combine to provide a brief landform pattern category p47
<<FeatureType>>LandSurfaceThe LandSurface Feature represents the surface properties of the landscape. These include the local geology and distribution of rock and other fragments, the slope, relief, pattern classification, site disturbance and genesis.

The LandSurface Feature captures landscape or surface properties that impact directly on the soil. These include the degree of site inundation, the microrelief, surface erosion, elevation, slope, runoff, aspect.
<<CodeList>>LandSurfaceClassificationTermThe types of landform elements.
<<CodeList>>ModalSlopeTermTerms to describe the modal slope: the most common class of slope occurring in the landscape pattern.
{Australian Soil and land Survey Field Handbook p45}
<<CodeList>>RelativeInclinationTermTerms to describe the morphological attribute expressing the relative inclination of adjacent landform elements in a toposequence (eg waxing, waning, maximal, minimal) p20
<<CodeList>>ReliefTermA term value specifying the average relief (eg very high, low).
These are related to actual relief values, but no attempt is made here to validate between the two properties.
{Australian Soil and land Survey Field Handbook p47}
<<CodeList>>RunoffTermTerms to describe The relative rate at which water runs off the soil surface. it is largely determined by slope, surface cover and soil infiltration rate. p144
<<DataType>>SizeThe size of the object
<<DataType>>SlopeMeasurementMethod of determining slope (eg Contour plan at 1:10 000 scale), the slope value as a % measure, the slope classification value (eg gently inclined, steep, precipitous)
<<FeatureType>>SoilLandscapeAt a conceptual level landscape comprises the visible features of an area of land, including the physical elements of it soils, landforms (LandSurface Feature) such as (ice-capped) mountains, hills, geology (GeologicFeature), water bodies such as rivers (StreamChannel Feature), lakes, ponds and the sea, living elements of land cover including indigenous vegetation (VegetationFeature), human elements including different forms of land use (LandUse Feature), buildings and structures, and transitory elements such as lighting and weather conditions (Climate Feature).
The SoilLandscape is the set of these that provides the context for the identified Soil.
