Official Series Description

Lab Data Summary

Aggregate lab data for the AMADOR soil series. This aggregation is based on all pedons with a current taxon name of AMADOR, and applied along 1-cm thick depth slices. Solid lines are the slice-wise median, bounded on either side by the interval defined by the slice-wise 5th and 95th percentiles. The median is the value that splits the data in half. Five percent of the data are less than the 5th percentile, and five percent of the data are greater than the 95th percentile. Values along the right hand side y-axis describe the proportion of pedon data that contribute to aggregate values at this depth. For example, a value of "90%" at 25cm means that 90% of the pedons correlated to AMADOR were used in the calculation. Source: KSSL snapshot as of September 2017.

Component Association

Two views depicting components that occur within map units containing the AMADOR series as a major component. Component association is a function of how frequently components co-occur, weighted by component percentage. This summary should generate structures that are related to soil-landscape concepts that were used to construct map units containing the AMADOR series. Both views are approximations of the multi-dimensional relationship between components. Note that these diagrams give only partial information on the relationships between components other than AMADOR. Source: SSURGO snapshot.

Graph representation: each circle (vertex) is a component, lines (edges) connect components that have been mapped together, colors define groups of components that frequently co-occur, vertex proximity is proportional to co-occurrence as weighted by component percentage. Dark lines connect vertices to the queried soil series, grey lines connect other vertices.

Dendrogram representation: branch height (relative to the left-side of the figure) is proportional to co-occurrence as weighted by component percentage, clusters of components are highlighted in this view.

  1. CA-2010-08-30-04 | Stanislaus County, Northern Part - 2007

    Typical pattern of soils and parent materials on the eastern side of the San Joaquin Valley and in the low hills of the metamorphic belt region of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Consolidated parent materials are in the hills (Soil Survey of Stanislaus County, California, Northern Part; 2007).

  2. CA-2011-05-27-08 | Sacramento County - 1993

    Cross section showing the relationship of geomorphic surfaces, soils, and geology in the eastern part of Sacramento County. The vertical scale is exaggerated. The number 1 indiates Deer Creek; 2, the Cosumnes River; 3, Arkansas Creek; and 4, the Sacramento- Amador County line (Soil Survey of Sacramento County, California; 1993).

Map of Series Extent

Approximate geographic distribution of the AMADOR soil series. To learn more about how this distribution was mapped, or to compare this soil series extent to others, use the Series Extent Explorer (SEE) application.

Soil series sharing subgroup-level classification with AMADOR, arranged according to family differentiae. Hovering over a series name will print full classification and a small sketch from the OSD.
