Pedotechnique and its application to soil survey: a proposal
This publication concerns "engineering" interpretations of pedological soil surveys in Canada. A proposal was made in response to a request by the Expert Committee on Soil Survey (ECSS) to set up national systems for soil survey methodology. A methodology termed the pedotechnical system for soil survey interpretations was proposed and subsequently texted by pedologists in three provinces in Canada during the 1980-81 soil survey field season. This publication is a record of that proposal.
