    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    The Genesis and Classification of Cold Soils exposes the processes involved in the development of the principal kinds of soils that occur in cold regions and introduces readers to the classification of those soils. The book uses the terminologies and concepts of the description of soils provided by the Soil Taxonomy of the United States. Topics covered... more...

  • Soil Carbonby S. A. Banwart; E. Noellemeyer; E. Milne

    CABI 2014; US$ 180.00

    This book brings together the essential evidence and policy opportunities regarding the global importance of soil carbon for sustaining Earth's life support system for humanity. Covering the science and policy background for this important natural resource, it describes land management options that improve soil carbon status and therefore increase... more...

  • Soil Organic Matter in Sustainable Agricultureby Fred Magdoff; Ray R. Weil

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 132.95

    Recognition of the importance of soil organic matter (SOM) in soil health and quality is a major part of fostering a holistic, preventive approach to agricultural management. Students in agronomy, horticulture, and soil science need a textbook that emphasizes strategies for using SOM management  in the prevention of chemical, biological, and physical... more...

  • Scaling Methods in Soil Physicsby Yakov Pachepsky; David E. Radcliffe; H. Magdi Selim

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 209.95

    The scaling issue remains one of the largest problems in soil science and hydrology. This book is a unique compendium of ideas, conceptual approaches, techniques, and methodologies for scaling soil physical properties. Scaling Methods in Soil Physics covers many methods of scaling that will be useful in helping scientists across a range of soil-related... more...

  • The Biogeochemistry of Submerged Soilsby Guy Kirk

    Wiley 2004; US$ 335.00 US$ 290.33

    Submerged soils and the wetlands they support are of huge practical importance: in global element cycles, as centres of biodiversity, in global food production. They are also uniquely interesting scientifically because of their peculiar biogeochemistry and the adaptations of plants and microbes to it. This book describes the physical, chemical and... more...

  • Soil and Environmental Analysisby Keith A. Smith; Malcolm S. Cresser

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 309.00

    Evaluating traditional and recent analytical methods according to speed, sensitivity, and cost-efficiency, this reference supports specialists in the selection of effective analytical techniques and equipment for the study of soils, soil contaminants, and environmental samples.

  • Soil and Environmental Analysisby Keith A. Smith

    CRC Press 2000; US$ 309.00

    "Reviews a wide range of methods for soil physical analysis. Considers applications, accuracy, measurement time, and cost of equipment. Provides examples of applications." more...

  • Geochemical and Hydrological Reactivity of Heavy Metals in Soilsby H. Magdi Selim; William L. Kingery

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 297.00

    The hydrological and geochemical interactions between clay minerals and organic matter in soils directly influence the reaction, behavior, and mobility of heavy metals in soils. Geochemical and Hydrological Reactivity of Heavy Metals in Soils is one of few books that comprehensively illustrates this cause-and-effect relationship. It highlights analytical... more...

  • Soil Formationby Nico van Breemen; Peter Buurman

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 81.73

    Soils form a unique and irreplaceable essential resource for all terrestrial organisms, including man. Soils form not only the very thin outer skin of the earth's crust that is exploited by plant roots for anchorage and supply of water and nutrients. Soils are complex natural bodies formed under the influence of plants, microorganisms and soil animals,... more...

  • Microwave Dielectric Behaviour of Wet Soilsby Jitendra Behari

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 95.53

    Soil moisture plays an important role in the runoff process, and its evaluation can be used as a marker of flood risk or drought occurrence. The data is also required to validate the soil moisture component in a variety of soil types of hydrologic models before a possible flood event, and potentially improves the accuracy of their prediction. Keeping... more...
