The Leetonia soils occur in small areas throughout the Appalachian region of Virginia. They are characteristic Podzols of the region and are developed in highly siliceous parent material having low base status. Detailed field and laboratory studies were made of 3 profiles of the Leetonia soils, and field studies were made of 2 associated soils. The interplay and effects of the various soil-forming factors are illustrated by this study. Although the Leetonia soils are of minor extent, their contrast with associated soils in the landscape gives them stature in the study of the effects of soil-forming processes.
