Judy used the following soil triangle to identify a sample of soil as silty clay. Explain the characteristics of this soil sample that likely allowed Judy to make this identification. Include particle size and texture in your response.
The soil sample would have shown signs of being 35-55% clay, 65-85% sand, it would also have shown small amounts of silt. If you look at the chart it shows the percentages of the amounts of clay, sand, and silt. Sandy clay has a high percentage of sand, a slightly less percentage of clay, and a small amount of silt if any.
