368 Digital Soil Morphometrics

Oral Session
SSSA Division: Pedology
The toolkit for describing soil profiles has not much changed in the past 50 years. Digital soil morphometrics is defined as the application of tools and techniques for measuring and mapping soil profile attributes and deriving continuous depth functions.  This topical session focuses on examples in the emerging field of digital soil morphometrics.
