Functions of soils. Soil is a major component of the Earth's ecosystem. In areas likely to have expansive soil, the building official shall require soil tests to determine where such soils do exist. fig. 2 : visual classification of soils and gravels (top-left to right) clay, silt and sand. Shale is the most abundant sedimentary rock. It is found in sedimentary basins worldwide.
