Description
The soil landscape is a product of transport and deposition processes. Not all soils have rocks as their ultimate parents; organic soils are derived from decomposed organic (plant and less commonly animal) remains. Parent material is variable but can be broken down into three broad groups: organic materials, residual materials, and transported materials.
