Abstract

In U.S. Soil Taxonomy, anthropogenic soils are classified into two basic categories depending on type of soil parent material: (1) human-altered material (HAM), and (2) human-transported material (HTM). Generally speaking, a surface layer of HTM or HAM ≥50 cm thick must be present in order for a pedon to be classified using the anthropogenic soil profile.
