Soil geography and geostatistics - Concepts and applications

Funded under: FP7-JRC

Abstract

Geostatistics are a useful tool for understanding and mapping the variation of soil properties across the landscapes. They can be applied at different scales regarding the initial punctual datasets the soil scientist has been provided, and regarding the target resolution of the study. This report is a collection of various studies, all dealing with geostatistical methods, which have been done in Hungary, Russia and Mexico, with the financial support of various research grants. It provides also a chapter about the general concepts of geostatistics and a discussion about limitations of geostatistics with an opening discussion on the usage of pedodiversity index. This report is then particularly recommended to soil scientists who are not so familiar with geostatistics and who need support for applying geostatistics in specific conditions.
