The Prugh method (Fig. 7) • adjusts for these factors. Where a soil is very loose, very dense, or very uniform, Prugh is preferred. Stratification. Many soils are layered, with seams of very clean or very silty sand a few inches or less in thickness. The typical 18-in. (450-mm) sample is mixed during the grain size analysis, and the stratification is not reflected in the curve. Horizontal and vertical hydraulic conductivity may vary greatly from the average value estimated. 2a is a photograph of a clay layer within a sand deposit that significantly affects the overall hydraulic conductivity of the deposit.

Glacial till is among the densest soil encountered. Glacial outwash is material that has been transported by melt water and sorted into relatively uniform deposits. Outwash can range from clean sand and gravel to fine silts and clays. Its distinguishing characteristic is the uniformity of an individual deposit or a layer within the deposit. Layering is not uncommon in outwash, since changes in Pleistocene weather caused increase or decrease in the velocity of the melt water. Outwash sands and gravels can be extremely permeable.

The last advance, called the Wisconsin, drew to a close about 10,000 years ago. Conditions during the Pleistocene epoch defy imagination. The mass of ice, up to many thousands of feet (or meters) thick, crept slowly southward, grinding and tearing at the surface. The crust of the earth sagged under the weight, creating folds, faults, and large depressions. Soils that survived under the ice became overconsolidated, with densities sometimes approaching that of concrete. Great quantities of soil and rock were picked up by the glaciers and carried along, to be modified and re-deposited further south.
