The correct order of the vertical cross-section of soil layers is organic, topsoil, subsoil, parent rock, and bedrock.

What is the soil profile?

The soil profile is the vertical cross-section of soil from the top to the underlining bedrock layer.

Starting from the top, soil contains organic materials in the form of decomposing leaves, twigs, etc. Immediately after the organic materials lies the topsoil.

After the topsoil comes the subsoil, parent rock, and bedrocks respectively.
