Ubiquitous shallow depressions, locally called playas, dot the southern High Plains of West Texas and eastern New Mexico. They range in size from a fraction of an acre to more than 200 acres. The playas hold water intermittently and have no external drainage. The primary objectives of the study were to characterize the mineralogy of a playa soil and underlying sediments from each of the soil textural zones, to determine selected chemical and physical properties of the soils from the same playas, and to determine the relationships of the playa sediments to the associated upland soils.
