Fluvial Soil Textural Characteristics in upper Ghod Basin using GIS and GPS Techniques

Authors(2) :-Nilesh Pandit Kale , Jyotiram C. More

The present research paper deals a fluvial soil textural characteristics in upper watershed. GIS and GPS are essential tools for understanding the soil texture. With the help of GPS soil sample location are demarked and various maps are prepared using in GIS. The analysis of soil samples revealed that the proportion of clay (< 0.002 mm diameter) in the sample is varying between 0.25 to 49 percent, of silt and very fine sand (below 0.1 mm diameter) from 5 percent to 65 percent, of sand (0.1 to 0.2 mm diameter) from 5.54 percent and 59 percent and coarse material (above 0.2 mm diameter) from 3 percent to 75percent. On the basis of textural characteristics soil, we find out six textural class of soil. The soil texture control permeability, fertility, erodibility of soil.
