Classification of Soil on the basis of mode of transportation

Soil is formed by disintegration of rocks. The disintegrated rock particles then get transported by different natural agents like wind , water, etc either to same place as origin of rock or towards new region. The transported soil then gets deposited and keeps on increasing in quantity. Natural events continue to occur , the soil deposited once again get eroded and process of erosion-transportation-deposition-upheaval keeps on repeating.

Types of Geological Formation

There are four types of geological formation: Aquifer Aquitard Aquiclude Aquifuge Aquifer Aquifer are geological formation which contains water and can yield water. They are porous as well as pervious. They are water bearing strata from which underground water is generally extracted. Aquitard Aquitard are geological formation which contains water but yield is very less as compared to aquifer. They are porous strata but less pervious than aquifer. Aquiclude The geological formation which contains water but doesn’t allow extraction of
