Location 2: Bosrandweg – Soil

Here you will take a soil profile. First, try to find an auger (grondboor). Then, make a hole as you have seen in the video earlier this week. Turn the drill down until the drill is full and then place the soil next to the hole. Make sure you remove the top part of the filled drill after the first time, this is material that has fallen in and does not belong to the profile! You can stop if after a few drillings the soil no longer visibly changes. Don’t forget to fill/close the hole again after you are finished, we do not want an animal to get stuck in it. Observe this soil profile and try to answer the following questions!
