Guides for Editing Soil Properties Soil properties are measured from direct observations in the field or laboratory. Examples of soil
properties are bulk density, cation-exchange capacity, organic
matter, particle-size distribution, and soil moisture status.
Guides for Editing Soil Interpretations and Qualities Soil interpretations/qualities are behavior and performance attributes of the soil that cannot be
directly measured. They are developed from observations of dynamic conditions and from soil properties.
Examples of soil interpretations/qualities are
corrosion, drainage class, frost action, and wind erodibility.
