9780195078862: Soils and Geomorphology

Soils and Geomorphology, now in its third edition, remains popular among soil scientists, geomorphologists, geologists, geographers, and archaeologists. While retaining the useful "factors of soil formation format," it has been extensively revised, incorporating a considerable amount of new research and offering a greater number of topics and examples -- particularly in the chapters "Weathering and Soil Development with Time" and "Topography: Soil Relations with Time in Different Climatic Settings." Greater emphasis is placed on the role of dust in pedogenesis, and new data are included on tropical soil development, global soil-loess relations, neotectonics, and reduction processes. The text discusses field applications such as the use of soils in recognizing climate change, estimating the age of geological deposits, and dealing with environmental problems such as acid rain. New "how-to" appendices on soil descriptions and calculating the profile development index are also included. Soils and Geomorphology is an ideal text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in courses on pedology, soil science, Quaternary geology, archeology, and sedimentary petrology.

About the Author:

Peter Birkeland is at University of Colorado, Boulder.

Review:

"Greatly revised, better than ever! Much new material. Chapter on Weather and Soil Development with Time was especially helpful. Perhaps the most valuable book on my bookshelf."--Hugh Mills, Tennessee Tech University

"This third edition greatly expands and updates the second (1984) edition. It is written for soil scientists, geomorphologists, geologists, geographers, and archeologists but would be an excellent text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in pedology, soil science, Quaternary
geology, and sedimentary geology. This book retains, but also expands and updates, the first five chapters from the previous edition that cover soil morphology, classification, weathering, weathering products and soil-forming processes. Chapter six, factors of soil formation, sets the theme for the
remaining four chapters, which addresses the relationship among soils and their formation with parent material, time, topography and climate. Emphasis is on the study of soils in their natural environment; two new appendixes on how to describe soil profiles, and calculate the profile development
index are included." --California Geology, May 2000
