Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A framework is proposed for the analysis and representation of three-dimensional soil-landscapes. An approach for linking soil-landscape and pedogenic models, involving the development of a conditional, mechanistic and stochastic representation of soil diversity, is introduced. Further sections examine the processes of appropriate temporal-spatial scales, including land surface and subsurface modelling; the variability of the soil landscape, soil horizons and layers; and data structures, such as geographic information systems and other data visualisation structures, for flexible integration with component process models of soil evolution. -after Authors
