Each of the clay field texture grades may also be modified according to the sand or silt fractions, where K is coarse sandy, S is medium sandy, F is fine sandy and Z is silty. These modifiers immediately precede the clay texture codes (e.g. KSLC for coarse sandy light clay; SLC for sandy light clay; ZLC for silty light clay).
