Soil Genesis, Classification Survey and Evaluation, Volume 2
Soil Genesis That Studies The Evolution Of Soils And The Changes Taking Place In Soil Bodies Has Received Increasing Interest And Attention In The Twentieth Century, And This Yet Continues. Despite The Fact That The Indian Soil Scientists Have Made Much Investigation Into The Subject Of Soil Genesis, Classification, Survey And Evaluation, There Are Very Few Books That Provide Ample Instructional Material Relevant To Situation In India. The Present Book Is Primarily Focused On The Study Of Geological Conditions Of India. Briefly Outlining The Fundamental Concepts Of Soil Genesis And Acquainting The Readers With Rich Minerals Present Under The Soil, The Book Provides A Detailed Study Of The Factors And Processes Of Soil Formation, Including Description And Interpretation Of The Soil Profile And Patterns Of Soils Occurring On The Surface Of The Earth. Furthermore, It Lays Down The Purpose And The Historical As Well As Modern Basis Of Classification Of Soils In Different Countries Across The World. It Particularly Provides An In-Depth Study Of Soils Prevalent In The Varied States Of India In Addition To The Assessment Of Productivity Of Bench Mark Soils Of The Country. The Book Also Covers Significant Areas Like Remote Sensing, Soil Survey, Land Use, Land Capability Classification, Land Irrigability Classification, Land Evaluation, Land Use Planning And Cartography. Considerable Authentic Information Has Been Drawn From The Works Of Indian Soil Scientists In These Disciplines Which Has Necessarily Added To The Value Of The Book.Designed As A Textbook, Its Approach To The Subject Is Reader-Friendly. Its Simple Language And Lucid Style Make It Accessible Even To Average Students. It Is Hoped That The Book Will Prove Immensely Useful And Informative To Students And Teachers Of Geology As Well As Soil Surveyors.
