Wikipedia

  1. podsol

    In soil science, podzols are the typical soils of coniferous or boreal forests and also the typical soils of eucalypt forests and heathlands in southern Australia. In Western Europe, podzols develop on heathland, which is often a construct of human interference through grazing and burning. In some British moorlands with podzolic soils, cambisols are preserved under Bronze Age barrows (Dimbleby, 1962).

  1. podsol

    Podsol is a type of soil that is typically found in cold or temperate climates, like those in Northern Europe, Asia, and North America. It is characterized by a light-colored eluvial horizon, or top layer, from which minerals and organic substances have been leached, and a darker, underlying layer, or illuvial horizon, which has accumulated these leached materials. This process is known as podzolization. Podsols are often acidic and low in nutrients, making them unsuitable for most agricultural use. However, they can support certain types of forests, like pine and birch trees.
