Soil stability

A qualitative assessment of the soil stability (i.e. the resistance to external effects and the ability to restore the disturbed properties) was made with regard to the external and internal factors. In general, the stability decreases from low graded surfaces or gentle slopes with an increase in an altitude and steepness of slopes. In the same direction a change from loamy deposits to stony deposits with small thickness of the loose mass takes place, and heat supply changes for the worse. In total, four large subdivisions of soils were distinguished according to different degrees of stability: low, medium, medium and above medium, and moderate. Their characteristic is given in the legend to the map of the soil stability to the anthropogenic impact.
