This publication studies on advancements in Proximal Soil Sensing (PSS) and excessive answer electronic soil mapping. PSS has turn into a multidisciplinary quarter of research that goals to improve field-based concepts for accumulating details at the soil from within sight, or inside of, the soil. among others, PSS comprises using optical, geophysical, electrochemical, mathematical and statistical tools. This quantity, compatible for undergraduate path fabric and postgraduate examine, brings jointly rules and examples from these constructing and utilizing proximal sensors and excessive solution electronic soil maps for purposes comparable to precision agriculture, soil illness, archaeology, peri-urban layout and excessive land-value purposes, the place there's a specific desire for prime spatial answer details. The e-book particularly covers soil sensor sampling, proximal soil sensor improvement and use, sensor calibrations, prediction equipment for giant information units, purposes of proximal soil sensing, and high-resolution electronic soil mapping.

Key topics: soil sensor sampling – soil sensor calibrations – spatial prediction equipment –
reflectance spectroscopy – electromagnetic induction and electric resistivity – radar and
gamma radiometrics – multi-sensor systems – excessive answer electronic soil mapping - applications
