Mathematical generalizations of regional soil size distribution indicate a decrease in soil grain size toward the southeast, a disparity between alinement of the soil facies and the strike of the present outcrop of lower Greensand, and the existence of a zone of abnormally coarse facies to the west of the line of the River Ivel, all features that correlate with observations on the distribution of bedrock size facies. A suggested correlation between local zones of small median grain size and abnormally high proportions of silt and clay soil sizes is made.
