Abstract

This chapter focuses on describing soils (sites and profiles) in the field, working from a geomorphic perspective. Topics considered include placing soils in the landscape, selecting sites for description, accessing soil profiles, describing sites and profiles, field testing that can be done, and soil sampling for laboratory analysis. Aspects such as level of detail required (with examples) and recent advances are also considered. Some frequently encountered problems are highlighted and current approaches discussed.
