From the PublisherThese two books are the greatly revised, rewritten and expanded versions of the Handbook first published in 2000. In the intervening period, soil science has undergone great changes through the application of modern methods of chemical and physical analysis, new approaches to biology and the application of ever more powerful computers to the processing and display of natural resource data. There has also been a significant shift in the approach to soils as part of an environmental continuum with the atmosphere and water, and the implications of change to all these compartments and the interactions between them, and the rise of interdisciplinary science. These books reflect that progress. The Editors have drawn together a distinguished and wide-ranging panel of Associate Editors and contributors to assist them in the presentation of the information.

This unique, valuable handbook continues to be the state-of-the-art resource in soil science. This edition is dedicated to Huang, who began developing the second edition but died before its completion. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and graduate students in soil science disciplines, researchers/faculty, and professionals, including biologists, engineers, geomorphologists, and agronomists with a soil science background.
