    Soils knowledge dates to the earliest known practice of agriculture about 11,000 BP Civilizations all around the world showed various levels of soil knowledge by the 4th century AD, including irrigation, the use of terraces to control erosion, various ways of improving soil fertility, and ways to create productive artificial soils. Early soils knowledge was largely based on observations of nature: experiments to test theories were not conducted. Many famous scientists, for example, Francis Bacon, Robert Boyle, Charles Darwin, and Leonardo da Vinci worked on soils issues. Soil science did not become a true science, however, until the 19th century with the development of genetic soil science, led by Vasilii V Dokuchaev In the 20th century, soil science moved beyond its agricultural roots and soil information is now used in residential development, the planning of highways, building foundations, septic systems, wildlife management, environmental management, and many other applications in addition to agriculture

    Artists have depicted soils in paintings since medieval times, and most landscape and soil paintings were made in the eighteenth century. The systematic study of soils started later and soil science was dominated by agricultural chemistry for most of the nineteenth century. Since the late 1800s soil profile drawings, paintings and photographs have been depicted in hundreds of textbooks. This paper traces the depiction of soil profiles in the scientific literature from the late 1700. The first soil profile depictions were simple diagrams illustrating different layers and soil processes. Photographs started to appear in textbooks at the end of the nineteenth century. In the 1950s, several books contained water paintings and from the 1970s onwards textbooks had colour photographs. Soil profile depictions were merely used to illustrate different orders in a classification system. Since the 1990s, efforts have been made to depict the soil profile in 3D. The overall trends and pattern found in this analysis not only reflect the technical ability to depict soils (e.g. camera, printing techniques) but also reflect the state of knowledge on the key properties and processes that have formed a soil

    Hydrologists, climatologists, soil scientists and environmental engineers are frequently asked to analyse complex environmental problems. It is becoming increasingly apparent that these problems usually involve feedbacks between atmospheric, ecological, and hydrological systems, as well as human society. It is often the feedbacks between systems that are of greatest interest because they may produce unanticipated responses. That is why coupling of different compartments of the Earth system has emerged as a general challenge to the modelling community. This book considers an array of state-of-the-art coupling and modelling concepts. First the relevant Earth system cycles are presented, followed by a discussion on scale issues and multiple equilibria. Inter- and intra-compartmental coupling is addressed, along with a debate on non-linearities and questions of parameterisation. Several applications are presented, where a focus is on cases where the hydrological cycle plays a central role.

    Deze veldgids is bedoeld als een hulpmiddel om humusvormen in het veld te kunnen beschrijven en classificeren. Door de verschijningsvormen van het humusprofiel in een ecologische context te plaatsen, wordt duidelijk dat het humusprofiel veel informatie kan verschaffen over standplaatseigenschappen als vocht, zuurgraad en voedselrijkdom. Allereerst wordt de organische stofkringloop en de rol van verschillende bodemorganismen besproken. Vervolgens wordt beschreven hoe een profielbeschrijving gemaakt wordt en hoe relevante gegevens het beste opgenomen kunnen worden. In het laatste hoofdstuk wordt de classificatie van humusvormen behandeld. Begrippen en indelingen worden in een uitgebreide appendix behandeld.

    The influence of time as a soil forming factor was studied on an evolutionary sequence of five soils (1850 radiocarbo years BP-ca. 120,000 BP) developed in rhyolitic tephra deposits in New Zealand. New micromorphological observations were combined with existing macromorphological, chemical, textural, and clay mineralogical analyses to assess the extent of polygenesis in the soils. The younger soils (1850 BP to ca. 22,600 BP) are characterised by initial weathering and little secondary mineral formation. This status is expressed by abundant pumice fragments and fresh, easily weatherable minerals, as well as a low clay content with an isotropic character. Comminution and neoformation are the main pedological processes. The older soils (ca. 120,000 BP) are characterised by a high degree of alteration of primary minerals, little or no pumice fragments, clay illuviation, gleying, and a high clay content (>80%) consisting of a range of crystalline clay minerals including halloysite, gibbsite, kaolinite, and vermiculite, plus crystalline iron oxides. Evidence of polygenesis can be observed in the micromorphology of the older soils: (1) the range of secondary minerals is the result of the integration and succession of soil-forming processes through time; (2) the accumulatory character of the tephra deposits has resulted in stronger weathering of the lower horizons than upper horizons because of continuous pedogenesis. Such polygenesis in the older soils supports the view that the older the soil, the more polygenetic it is likely to be. Copyright

    Mineral transformation at the earth surface is a complex process. In volcanic ejecta, such transformations tend to be fairly rapid. Many weathering studies on volcanic materials have been carried out at different scales of observations, mostly using bulk samples. However, to get a proper understanding of the mechanisms of weathering of primary minerals and formation secondary minerals it is necessary to obtain data of undisturbed material at the scale of observation that micromorphology and submicroscopy deal with. Weathering studies at the micrometre scale with help of micromorphology showed the heterogenous character of mineral weathering and the co- existence of different secondary minerals.

    The main objective of papers in this thesis was to characterize and explain alteration of primary minerals and formation of secondary minerals at the particle level in volcanic soils in relation to (micro) environmental conditions.
    Thin sections of volcanic soils were studied by micromorphology, and relevant features were characterized chemically and mineralogically by submicroscopical methods performed on (un)disturbed samples isolated from thin sections.
    Mineral transformations were studied both on sites in the temperate humid zone and in the humid tropics.

    In a chronosequence of Quaternary terraces of the Allier in France, micromorphological and sub microscopical analyses showed:
    - Alteration of basaltic particles leads to clay formation whereas weathering of granite fragments contributes to the sand fractions.
    - A relative increase in the contents of Ti, Al, and Fe and a decrease of K, Na, Ca, and Si occur in weathering rinds of basalt pebbles. Differences in weathering intensity are predominantly a function of chemical composition of the basalt rather than a function of time.
    - A mass balance calculation carried out on an isovolumetric, altered basalt pebble with a fresh core, and on an enclosed, genetically related neoformed clay coating showed that all elements, except Fe were leached from all weathering rinds. Only Si, Al and some Ca were found in the clay coating, and part of the Al was derived from an external source.
    - Isotropic and anisotropic coatings occur in a Paleosol in an older terrace. Micromorphological observations demonstrated that such coatings are genetically related. The isotropic coating consists of allophanic material with minor amounts of 2:1 phyllosilicates, whereas the anisotropic types consist of 2:1 phyllosilicates only. Both types result from recombination of trachytic weathering products under restricted leaching conditions during coating formation.
    - Micromorphological observation demonstrated three types of coatings in two Planosols in two older terraces. Isotropic and anisotropic, translucent materials occur locally within one coating, suggesting a genetic similarity. These coatings are due to secondary mineral formation, The third type, anisotropic dusty clay coatings clearly resulted from clay illuviation. Cluster analyses reveal that the coatings of the same type were chemically more alike than different coatings in the same profile. About 83% of the grouped samples were classified correctly as either isotropic and anisotropic weathering coatings or anisotropic illuviation coatings.

    A technique is described to isolate undisturbed microparts of pedofeatures from thin sections. Such microparts can subsequently be analysed by Transmission Electron Microscopy. This technique allows performance of micromorphological, mineralogical and chemical analyses on one undisturbed micro sample at micrometre to nanometre scales.

    Isotropic coatings in the C horizon of a young Hapludand in Guadeloupe and in the C and R horizons of an old Hapludand in Costa Rica, both developed on andesitic volcanic materials were allophanic. Isotropic coatings present in the Bw horizons of both soils contain allophane and imogolite. The Al/Si molar ratios in the coatings in the Bw horizons are higher than those in the coatings of the C and R horizons. Anisotropic coatings are wholly gibbsitic and occur only in the Bw horizon of the older Costa Rican Hapludand. The gibbsitic coatings show a gradual transition to isotropic coatings and both types looks alike in plane polarized light suggesting a genetic relationship. The allophane coatings resulted from initial weathering of the parent materials, whereas the gibbsite coatings represent the ultimate stage of secondary mineral formation. The differences in chemical and mineralogical composition of the coatings are thought to be the result of different leaching conditions at the macro and micro scale.

    2:1 Phyllosilicates in Hapludands on Holocene andesitic beach ridges in Costa Rica occur as clay pseudomorphs after primary minerals. They are inherited from hydrothermally altered parent material from which the beach ridges were derived, and are not due to post depositional soil formation. Weathering and biological activity affect the clay pseudomorphs which leads to clay- sized particles consisting of 2:1 phyllosilicates. They are incorporated in the allophanic groundmass that results from actual soil formation in the Hapludands.

    Isotropic coatings also found in a West Java (Indonesia) Oxisol on andesitic volcanic parent materials are probably due to weathering of airborne ash additions. The coatings recrystallize to anisotropic coatings suggesting a neoformed genesis. Both types of coatings appear to be common in three andesitic catenas in Indonesia. The amount of coatings and the crystallinity tend to increase as the dry season become more pronounced. The anisotropic coatings can easily be confused with illuviation coatings.

    In the past, investigations on surface seals developing under simulated rains usually were performed with uniform rainfall intensities. Recent studies, however, showed that varying-intensity rains affect erosion and volumes of runoff. We conducted a study on surface sealing under varying-intensity rains using physical and morphological methods. Four 1-h-duration rainfall patterns were used: S1, S2, S3 and S4, with mean rainfall intensities of 83, 69, 65, and 51 mm h-1, respectively, and highest intensities of 148, 120, 111, and 100 mm h-1, respectively. Two experiments were performed in triplicate: (i) in packed soil columns, pressure heads at 1-cm depth were measured, and runoff (Rt) and wash sediment (St) collected at short time intervals during S1, S3, and S4 patterns; and (ii) packed shallow soil flumes were successively exposed to 10, 15, 30, 40, and 60 min of S2 and S4 patterns, and the surface was then characterized by micromorphological analysis of thin sections (S2) and top-view photographs (S2 and S4). The largest differences between rainfall patterns occurred during the intensity peaks (10–30 min): at the end of these periods, measured surface seal hydraulic conductances (β) attained values of 0.80, 0.25, and 0.51 h-1 for S1, S3, and S4, respectively. These relative β values are thought to be due to partially open surfaces as a result of microrill erosion (S1), complete sealing without erosion (S3), and incomplete sealing (S4). Presented Rt, St, and morphological data support these conclusions. After 5 min of the intensity peaks of S2, surface seals attained maximum observed thickness and minimum macroporosity (>30 µm). Planar voids (>500 µm) were eliminated at this point. Under continuing rain, erosion reduced the seal thickness and increased macroporosity, mainly as planar voids

    Dutch Late Weichselian braided river deposits and Holocene meandering river deposits of the Rhine have been studied and compared. Cross sections demonstrate the lateral and vertical variations of the Late Weichselian sediments. Soil mapping of these deposits, even on a very detailed scale, proves very difficult. Best results have been obtained with a legend based on hydrology enabling the distinction of topo-hydrosequences of well drained brown soils, imperfectly drained mottled soils and poorly drained grey soils.

    Advanced soil formation and notably the dramatic processes in the Late Weichselian period (decalcification, clay illuviation, pseudogleying, periglacial formation of a highly reoriented, very dense microstructure) have caused clay mineralogical, chemical and physical changes in the Late Weichselian soils.

    The well drained and imperfectly drained Late Weichselian soils have an argillic horizon (Alfisols, Luvisols), occasionally with very low base saturation (Ultisols, Acrisols) and with strong subsequent pseudogleying in the imperfectly drained soils. The Holocene soils demonstrate decalcification and biogenic homogenization as well as some gleying according to their drainage position. These soils are classified as Inceptisols (Cambisols), occasionally as Mollisols (Phaeozems).

    Less favourable physical characteristics and behaviour (soil strength, structure stability and tillage behaviour) of the Late Weichselian soils and soil material is quantitatively documented. Differences with the Holocene soils and soil material are statistically highly significant and are caused by differences in texture, content, quality and distribution of organic matter and the highly reoriented, very dense microstructure.

    Use as permanent grassland or ley in the crop rotation is recommended to increase levels of biological activity. This seems the only remedy for the imperfectly and poorly drained Late Weichselian soils that are compacted by natural soil forming processes not counteracted by biological activity. Very recently improved drainage of large areas of Late Weichselian imperfectly drained soils has increased the saturated hydraulic conductivity to noncritical levels through increased earthworm activity to some metres depth.

    A study was made of those morphological and physical soil properties considered to govern root development.

    A deep and wide-branched root system was shown only to develop in a soil containing a permanent heterogeneous pore system, formed by biological activity in the profile. Therefore a distinction was made between biogenic structures having a relatively heterogeneous pore-size distribution and physicogenic and geogenic structures with a more homogeneous one.

    To demonstrate the effect of differences in management on soil structure in originally similar profiles, three types of land use were compared. Use as arable land proved to give rise to the formation of compacted surface soils with physicogenic structures. Here, mechanical forces leading to degeneration of structure were not compensated by biological regeneration. The same soil under horticulture was, however, shown to have a high biological activity, through added organic manure, and to yield very porous surface soils.

    Land, used as pasture, proved to have intermediate properties in this regard. Only with sufficient drainage this favourable biological effect was found. Methods, developed to study the occurrence of biopores, were applied in some small soil surveys. It was suggested to include the biopore concept in both soil suitability and classification studies.
