What's Underfoot in Montana?

Soils are complex mixtures of minerals, water, air, organic matter, and countless organisms--the decaying remains of once-living things. There are different types of soil, each with its own set of characteristics. Dig down deep into any soil, and you’ll see that it is made of layers, or horizons. Put the soil horizons together, and they form a soil profile. Like a biography, each profile tells a story about the life of that soil.
