Explanatory booklet on the reconnaissance soil map of forest area – Western Karnataka and Goa

Abstract : This booklet documents the 1/1 000 000 scale reconnaissance soil map of forest area that covers the state of Goa, the Western fringe of Karnataka and North Kerala in the central Western Ghats region of peninsular India. It details the factors of soil genesis, which can explain soil distribution at this scale (climate, lithology, geomorphology) as well as the weathering systems observed in the area. Soil classification using either the old French system or the International Soil Taxonomy is given for the main types of soils. Detailed data about the sampled soil profiles are given in appendix, along with the map of the various types of soil identified.
