Abstract
Mineralogical and chemical characteristics of samples from a number of soils were used to demonstrate that soil materials from volcanic ash and local rock are thoroughly mixed. The mineralogy, micromorphology and grain-size distribution were studied to estimate the role of termites in mixing soil materials and in forming physical properties. Effects of other processes on mixing and on formation or decay of physical-properties were also estimated.
