Soil type and thickness are influenced by lithologic differences.
The lithologic and physiographic mosaic of Ecoregion 67l is distinct from that of the more rugged Northern Glaciated Ridges (67m), the glaciated and lakestudded plateau of Ecoregion 62b, the Northern Glaciated Shale and Slate Valleys (67k), and the NorthernGlaciated Limestone Valleys (67j).
Even a geologist can function without agreeing to the time scale; he just needs to be able to sort out the lithologic sequences and events.
It is underlain by quartzite and argillite; the lithologic mosaic and related slope stability and water quality issues are unlike those of Ecoregion 16k.
The lithologic mosaic is distinct from the Paleozoic rocks of Ecoregion 36 and the strictly Quaternary deposits of Ecoregion 73.
Ecoregion 36c is underlain by folded and faulted sandstone, shale, and novaculite (chert); the lithologic mosaic is distinct from the Athens Plateau (36a).

The lithologic mosaic is complex and distinct from the strictly Quaternary deposits of Ecoregions 34 and 73.
Petro-Sonde modified for various weather and surface conditions emphasis placed on subsurface mapping with the Petro-Sonde lithologic contacts, structure and stratigraphy
The Petro-Sonde delineates depth, thickness and fluid content of specific lithologic units from the surface and without a drill hole.
