Abstract
This report and accompanying soil maps describe the soils that occur in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia. One hundred and thirty-eight biophysical soil associations were identified. These have been field checked, mapped, sampled, analyzed for physical and chemical properties, and classified according to the Canadian System of Soil Classification. They have been evaluated for a variety of land use interpretations. The soil mapping is reconnaissance in nature. It was compiled at 1:50,000 scale and is presented at 1:100,000 scale on the enclosed maps. The report and map are mainly intended for resource planning and management at a regional level. Mapping is based upon air photo interpretation, supplemented by two field seasons of field traverses to verify, or refine, preliminary boundary locations, as well as to determine and record specific soil information.
