The Durorthids occur most frequently on fans or river terraces under sparse desert vegetation. All appear to have had volcanic ash or glass present at one time. There is evidence that the horizon has been influenced by a high water table at one time or another. Some are salty. 4. Salorthids The Salorthids are the Orthids that have a salic (salty) horizon within 75 cm of the surface, or within 1 meter of the surface for 1 month or more if saturated with water. They have no calcic, gypsic horizon above the salic horizon or duripan within 1 meter of the surface.
