Difference between moorum and soil

Moorum( or murum) is the word derived from the Tamil language, which means powdered rock.


Moorum is also a type of soil, mostly used for construction purposes. Generally,  it is deep brown or red in color. Moorum is used in plinth filling, road pavements, backfilling in trenches, footing pits, etc. It is a suitable type of soil in the construction field, since it does not contain any organic matters and can be compacted easily forming hard surfaces.

The soil is defined as a complex mixture of minerals, gravels, organic matters, rock particles, etc. In other words, the soil is the upper crust of the earth, supporting animals and plants growth with countless organisms within it.
