The Zonal soils of New York are members of the Gray-Brown Podzolic, Brown Podzolic, and Podzol great soil groups. Each dominates the best-drained sites of extensive areas, but each is associated locally with a complete catena controlled by groundwater relationships.

Each of these is also associated with a complete catena.
