There are numerous additional data and information that concerns human-altered and transported soils. In 2006, ICOMANTH will publish a second CD-ROM called “Anthropogenic Soils, ICOMANTH Report No. 2, Version 1.0.” This collection of materials will include electronic papers, laboratory data, soil surveys, soil series descriptions, digital pictures, seminars and posters that may be used in support of research and literature concerning human-altered and transported soils.
