Human Transported Material Technical Terms

Human Transported Material: Organic or mineral soil material (or any other material that can function as a soil material) that has been moved horizontally onto a pedon from a source area outside of that pedon by directed human activity, usually with the aid of machinery. There has been little or no subsequent reworking by wind, gravity, water, or ice. Human transported materials are most commonly associated with building sites, mining or dredging operations, land fills, or other similar activities that result in the formation of a constructional anthropogenic landform.
