Abstract

© 2017 Polish Academy of Sciences. All rights reserved. This paper presents preliminary results of the use of visible and near-infrared (VIS -NIR ) spectroscopy for soil classification and soil profile examination. Three experiments involving (1) three different soil types (Albic Luvisol, Gleyic Phaeozem, Brunic Arenosol), (2) three artificial micro-plots with similar texture (loamy sand, Gleyic Phaeozem) but different soil organic carbon (SOC ) content and (3) a soil profile (Fluvisol) have been investigated using VIS -NIR spectroscopy. Results indicated that VIS -NIR is a promising technique for preliminary soil description and can classify soils according to soil properties (especially SOC ) and horizons. Instead of complex chemical and physical analyses involved in routine soil profile classification, VIS -NIR spectroscopy is suggested as a useful, rapid, and inexpensive tool for soil profile investigation.
