Soils Illustrated - Field Descriptions – First Edition
This manual graphically documents field procedures and describes how to fill in a detailed soil description form. The soil description form presented and the methods for filling it out are adapted from Ministry of Environment, 1980, Describing Ecosystems in the Field. Describing Ecosystems in the Field was compiled from the Land Resource Research Institute’s (1978) Manual for Describing Soils in the Field. In compiling this chapter of Soils Illustrated - Field Descriptions, the following additional works were also consulted: Land Resource Research Institute, 1982, Manual for describing soils in the field (Revised); Soil Classification Working Group, 1998, The Canadian System of Soil Classification; and Schoeneberger, P.J. et al. 1998, Field book for describing and sampling soils. The manual is currently being printed on a laser printer by Kent Watson, through International Remotes Sensing Surveys Ltd, on 58 lb double sided water-resistant laser paper. The paper is not write in the rain paper but is durable and can get wet and will dry without the toner running or smearing. I printed a page and soaked it in the sink for some minutes and it dried and did not loose colour. If the manual gets wet dry the pages and be careful not to tear them. It does take some effort to tear them. -Kent Watson
