The Solonetzic order includes four great groups: Solonetz, Solodized Solonetz, Solod, and Vertic Solonetz. They are separated based on the degree of expression of the Ae horizon, the breakdown of the upper part of the B horizon, and the occurrence of Vertic features as indicated in the Solonetzic order chart.
Solonetz soils have a dark, organic-matter-enriched A horizon overlying the Solonetzic B, which occurs usually at a depth of 20 cm or less. The Ae (grey, leached) horizon is very thin or absent. Solodized Solonetz have a distinct Ae horizon between the dark A and the Solonetzic B. Solods have a transitional AB or BA horizon formed by degradation of the upper part of the Solonetzic B horizon.
