About this book

Soil is the most complicated of the environmental systems and as such it is especially difficult to analyse and model the processes occuring therein. This book describes the sampling and characterisation of soil particles. New approaches are given special treatment using fractal analysis of particle aggregations, whilst also introducing the advanced and sophisticated instrumentation for analysis of soil particles.
