WHAT DOES A HORIZON MEAN IN ENGLISH?

A horizon

Soil horizon

A soil horizon is a layer generally parallel to the soil surface, whose physical characteristics differ from the layers above and beneath. Each soil type usually has three or four horizons. Horizons are defined in most cases by obvious physical features, chiefly colour and texture. These may be described both in absolute terms and in terms relative to the surrounding material, i.e. ‘coarser’ or ‘sandier’ than the horizons above and below. The differentiation of the regolith into distinct horizons is largely the result of influences, such as air, water, solar radiation, and plant material, originating at the soil-atmosphere interface. Since the weathering of the regolith occurs first at the surface and works its way down, the uppermost layers have been changed the most, while the deepest layers are most similar to the original regolith. Identification and description of the horizons present at a given site is the first step in soil classification at higher levels, through the use of systems such as the USDA soil taxonomy or the Australian Soil Classification. The World Reference Base for Soil Resources lists 40 diagnostic horizons.
