Their dynamic-rate model regards soils (S) as a function of dynamic intensity factors (D), including energy and mass fluxes, pedoturbation, wetting and drying cycles and high or fluctuating watertables, and passive capacity factors (P) such as soil chemical environment, pedogenic accessions and associated feedbacks, and stability/instability of the geomorphic surfaces.
It seems that some silt particles have changed into clay particles due to pedogenic processes and puddling operations (and this has resulted in soils having heavier textures).
