It is covered by glacial formations with deposits of deep sands overlying clays and loams, podsols and bog soils above Cretaceous bedrock.
Towards the south and west podsols and acid brown forest soils develop in places with better drainage, and peat accumulates in less drained areas with bogs and tundra vegetation.
Most of BBSNP has easily eroded rather infertile podsols.
Many soil types in the humid climate result from these rocks, especially in GLNP where brown and red-yellow podsols with lithosols and latosols predominate.
In KSNP there are three main soils: podsols, erodable and infertile, are dominant, latosols in the lowlands are somewhat more fertile, and in the volcanic uplands, moderately to highly fertile andosols are common.
Soil types range from shallow sandy podsols derived from sand. stone to deep forest loams.
It occurs naturally on soils of only moderate fertility: acid and neutral yellow earths, acid-bleached red duplex soils, podsols, and some brown friable earths derived principally from shales.
