Pedology and Land Evaluation

This paper comprises two parts that together examine the role of pedology in land-use related issues and land management. Part (1): the stratigraphy of soils, their formation and classification in New Zealand; the occurrence and variability spatially of soils, and how they can be mapped using classical and digital techniques including the use of geostatistics. Part (2): land evaluation, the interpretation of soil and land data in forms applicable to land-use planning and management.
