TXSUBDO:Dominant sub-surface textural class

TXSUBDO:Dominant sub-surface textural class

A Soil Typological Unit (STU) can have contrasted sub-surface textures that fall in two different textural classes. The secondary sub-surface textural class (TEXT-SUB-SEC) is used to indicate which sub-surface texture is less extensive than the dominant one. Together the TEXT-SUB-DOM and the TEXT-SUB-SEC attributes reflect the lateral variability of the sub-surface horizon texture within the STU. If there is no such variability or if there is no information, the value of TEXT-SUB-DOM must also be entered for TEXT-SUB-SEC.

2 Medium (18% < clay < 35% and >= 15% sand, or 18% < clay and 15% < sand < 65%)
3 Medium fine (< 35% clay and < 15% sand)
4 Fine (35% < clay < 60%)
5 Very fine (clay > 60 %)
