This book describes statistical methods suitable for analyzing variation in soil and for relating soil to its environment. The authors stress sound sampling technique and show how to use the results for estimation, prediction, and efficient design. They show how classification can enhance the utility of survey data and lead to economies in sampling. It includes information on regression, as used in both statistics and natural science.

Light scratches and light soiling on textblock edges. It is a very easy read, and uses real soil survey examples. The bibliography is excellent. It's too bad this book was allowed to go out of print
Light scratches and light soiling on textblock edges. It's too bad this book was allowed to go out of print. Webster and Oliver's newer book Geostatistics for environmental scientists (ISBN 0-471-96553-7) is also quite good but more narrowly focused, and misses many of the topics in this older book.

Early soil surveys were made to help farmers locate soils responsive to. .Nevertheless, the changes in soil surveys during this period were mainly responses to the needs of farming, ranching, and forestry.
Early soil surveys were made to help farmers locate soils responsive to different management practices and to help them decide what crops and management practices were most suitable for the particular kinds of soil on their farms. His soil classification of 1935 depends heavily on the concept of a "normal soil," the product of equilibrium on a landscape where downward erosion keeps pace with soil formation. Clarification and broadening of the concept of a soil science also grew out of the increasing emphasis on detailed soil mapping.
Information on soil and land resources is a prerequisite for informed decisions on land use and management. Procedures for acquiring and using this information are introduced and emphasis is given to a balanced approach with elements of mapping, modelling and monitoring within the broader context of environmental change. Whatever the context, information is needed for sound decisions. Decisions made without the appropriate information leads to inefficient use of resources and environmental degradation. Decision-making about land use and management requires good information on the characteristics of soil and land, and how they respond to particular treatments.
Soil classification deals with the systematic categorization of soils based on distinguishing characteristics as well as criteria that dictate choices in use. Soil classification is a dynamic subject, from the structure of the system itself, to the . Soil classification is a dynamic subject, from the structure of the system itself, to the definitions of classes, and finally in the application in the field. Soil classification can be approached from the perspective of soil as a material and soil as a resource.
