An Introduction to Soil Science Dr. Robert L. Ficklin (Spring ) The Purposes and Functions of Soils Soils are natural bodies made from both mineral and organic materials and capable of supporting plants out-of-doors. Soils have horizons, roughly parallel to the earth’s surface, that indicate the degree to which materials have been altered and redistributed by water. Precipitation falling on a soil landscape will first be subject to interception losses on vegetation of anywhere from 5 to 30% (light rain on thick canopy). • When the rate of rainfall exceeds the infiltration rate of the soil, net runoff results. • The infiltration rate is direct function of the degree of macroporosity of the surface soil.
