The purpose of this study is to provide a chemical, physical, and mineralogical characterization of the Crete soils occurring in the southeastern and south central sections of Nebraska. The relationship of the Crete soils to topography and parent material, the available phosphorus status, and the distribution of apatite, a primary phosphorus-bearing mineral, were studied from selected profiles in the two areas. Further work involved the examination and description of thin sections from certain horizons of these profiles.
