About this book

Soil micromorphology deals with the microscopic study of undisturbed soil and regolith samples, making use especially of thin sections and petrographic techniques. This book investigates the genetic interpretation of micromorphological features, covering not only the classic genetic soil horizons but also processes of soil material formation and weathering, and the results of human activities and regoliths in a wider sense.
