REGOSLOL / DYSTRIC REGOSOLS / UMBRISOLS / HAPLIC / LEPTOSOLS / LITHIC / LUVISOLS / ERUPTIVE ROCKS (Source)
Regosol, one of the 30 soil groups in the classification system of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Regosols are characterized by shallow, medium- to fine-textured, unconsolidated parent material that may be of alluvial origin and by the lack of a significant soil horizon (layer) formation because of dry or cold climatic conditions. Regosols occur mainly in polar and desert regions, occupying about 2 percent of the continental land area on Earth, They are usually found under their original natural vegetation or under limited dryland cropping. Regosols often show accumulations of calcium carbonate or gypsum in hot, dry climatic zones. (Source)
