  1. Comparison of Candler Sand and Adamsville Fine Sand Shengsen Wang Presentation for Environmental Pedology, Spring 2011

  2. Site Location Citrus Research & Education Center700 Experiment Station Rd., Lake Alfred, FL 33850 #1: Candler Sand, 0-5% slope 105m #2: Adamsville Fine Sand

  3. Lake Alfred http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Polk_County_Florida_Incorporated_and_Unincorporated_areas_Lake_Alfred_Highlighted.svg Lake Alfred is located within the Central Florida Highlands area of the Atlantic coastal plain with a terrain consisting of flatland interspersed with gently rolling hills. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Alfred,_Florida http://fl.water.usgs.gov/PDF_files/wri94_4254_yobbi.pdf

  7. Soil Properties and Interpretations • Infiltration Rate: High • Available Water: Low (> 7.5 - < 15 cm ) • Soil Interpretations : • Hydraulic Conductivity :Moderate • Seasonal High Water Table Depth: > 150cm • Site Characteristics • Position of Site : Ridge • Parent Material: Marine • Soil Slope: Gently Sloping ( 2 – 6 % ) • Surface Runoff : Slow • Erosion Potential : Low • Soil Classification • Epipedon: Ochric • Subsurface Horizon: Albic&Argillic • Order: Entisols Dwellings with basement: slight limitations Septic tank absorption fields:slight limitations Local roads and streets:slight limitations
