Newer methods added, scope expanded in new Methods of Soil Analysis Book

MADISON, WI, DECEMBER 27, 2002 Following in the tradition of A. Klute's classic Methods of Soil Analysis Part 1--Physical and Mineralogical Methods, this new Methods of Soil Analysis Part 4--Physical Methods book joins the well-loved series that should be on every lab bookshelf. Due to the rapid and numerous changes in measurement methods, the Soil Science Society of America has published this volume containing soil physical measurements.

The editors and 125 contributors to Methods 4 have expanded the scope and comprehensive nature of the original Methods 1. More methods and newer technologies have been added to keep pace with an evolving group of hydrologists, geologists, environmental scientists, soil chemists, and microbiologists interested in transport of pesticides, chemicals, and microorganisms and use of remote sensing procedures to assess large-scale geochemical processes. The book includes very thorough discussions of the principles behind the methods, explores more issues related to handling the data generated, and provides more commentary and evaluation of current methods "Never before have we had such a technologically advanced set of tools for addressing the needs of humanity and the earth. This work will undoubtedly join the ranks of the previously internationally successful soil methods monographs and become a standard item on the bookshelves of most soil and earth scientists," says John W. Doran, past president, SSSA, in the foreword.

The largest book ever produced by SSSA, Methods 4 comprises nearly 1,700 pages of detailed descriptions of techniques for carrying out nearly all physical measurements on soils and soil water. The 26-page comprehensive table of contents can be used to locate specific soil characteristics and methods. The approach in Methods 4 differs substantially from Methods 1 with the new book using a more hierarchical approach. It is divided into eight chapters, with each chapter covering a major aspect of soil physical
