About this book

Environmental Soil-Landscape Modeling: Geographic Information Technologies and Pedometrics presents the latest methodological developments in soil-landscape modeling. It analyzes many recently developed measurement tools, and explains computer-related and pedometric techniques that are invaluable in the modeling process.

This volume provides an in-depth reviews overview of the history of soil-landscape modeling. By uniting the work of soil scientists from diverse backgrounds, it promotes quantitative soil-landscape modeling as a joint venture among those involved with soil geography, soil genesis, and pedometrics.

The editor is not only very experienced in environmental soil-landscape modeling, but she also has a clear overview of the entire field. Through her choice of authors and subjects, Sabine Grunwald has created a comprehensive and well-balanced book. I am confident that it will be a stimulus and source of inspiration for all soil scientists working on the development of an operational model of soil-landscape evolution. Gerard B.M. Heuvelink, Wageningen University and Research Centre, the Netherlands, and Chair Commission 1.5 Pedometrics Div. 1 of the International Union of Soil Sciences
