This volume is a substantial revision of its well-received predecessor Pedology, Weathering and Geomorphological Research. Written by a leading soil geomorphologist, this book provides a systematic treatment of pedology, with an emphasis on field aspects, processes, factors, and applications. It includes atmospheric additions in pedogenesis and covers in depth the use of soils in archaeological and Quaternary stratigraphic studies. Material has been added throughout, including information on alpine and desert soils, and on archeology-soil relationships. Numerous charts, graphs, tables, maps, figures and photographs (some new to this edition) contribute to a clear understanding of each section.
