Soil Change Guide: Procedures for Soil Survey and Resource Inventory By U.S. Department of Agriculture
Paperback: $27.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
Many soil properties have changed and can change as a result of management, historical land use, or even natural factors, such as drought, interacting with land use. National soil survey databases... More > currently include soil property information for the relatively static soil properties, such as texture, and also for properties affected by management, such as soil organic matter. The databases do not, however, distinguish the values of dynamic soil properties (e.g., organic matter, bulk density, infiltration rate) according to their land use, management system, ecological state, or plant community. “Dynamic soil properties” as defined in this Guide are soil properties that change within the human time scale. Differences that may exist in these properties can affect the performance of the soil. Furthermore, some dynamic soil properties change very little in response to management and disturbances.< Less

Guidelines for Soil Quality Assessment in Conservation Planning By U.S. Department of Agriculture
Paperback: $16.51
Prints in 3-5 business days
Soil quality is the capacity of a specific kind of soil to function within natural or managed ecosystem boundaries to: • sustain plant and animal productivity • maintain or enhance water... More > and air quality • support human health and habitation Soil function describes what the soil does. Soil functions are: (1) sustaining biological activity, diversity, and productivity; (2) regulating and partitioning water and solute flow; (3) filtering and buffering, degrading, immobilizing, and detoxifying organic and inorganic materials, including industrial and municipal by-products and atmospheric deposition; (4) storing and cycling nutrients and other elements within the earth’s biosphere; and (5) providing support of socioeconomic structures and protection for archeological treasures associated with human habitation.

Soil Quality Card Design Guide - A Guide To Develop Locally Adapted Conservation Tools By U.S. Department of Agriculture
Paperback: $19.94
Prints in 3-5 business days
This Guide provides assistance to Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) staff and its conservation partners to collaboratively develop Soil Quality Cards with local farmers. Partners such as... More > Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD), Cooperative Extension Service, state conservation agencies, and local groups assist in producing Cards that farmers and other land managers can use to assess soil quality on their land and implement management practices that ensure long-term soil productivity. To develop a process that enables NRCS and its conservation partners to design locally adapted Soil Quality Cards, the Soil Quality Institute worked with several university extension and research departments and enlisted the expertise of NRCS state and field staff across the country. The outcome is a participatory process through which farmers and conservationists learn together about soil quality and collaboratively develop assessment tools customized to local needs.< Less
Erosion and Sedimentation Manual - Reclamation: Managing Water in the West By U.S. Department of the Interior
Paperback: $44.52
Prints in 3-5 business days
Surface erosion, sediment transport, scour, and deposition have been the subjects of study by engineers and geologists for centuries, due to their importance to economic and cultural development.... More > Most ancient civilizations existed along rivers in order to use the water supply for irrigation and navigation. All rivers carry sediments, due to surface erosion from watersheds and bank erosion along the river. Our understanding of the dynamic equilibrium between sediment supply from upstream and a river's sediment transport capability is important to the success of river engineering design, operation, and maintenance.< Less
