brown podzolic soil Freely draining, leached soil profile that has developed acid surface horizons, a mor surface humus, and a clearly visible enrichment of translocated iron oxide in the middle, or B, horizon. The profile has been leached to the early stage of podzolization, identified by the movement down-profile of iron and aluminium compounds.
