U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists contributed to an innovative new book on methods to study soils, “Methods of Soil Analysis, Part 4, Physical Methods”. This book, published in 2002 by the Soil Science Society of America (SSSA), will serve as a valuable resource for the ever-growing group of scientists, engineers, and resource managers concerned with the movement of water and transport of chemicals in soils and sediments. The book gives exhaustive information on the latest methods for determining the parameters that control the fate and transport of fluids and chemicals in soils. USGS scientists contributed eleven sections to the book.
