Soil Structure and Fabric sets out a method of describing the structure and fabric of soils that proceeds consistently from macroscopic descriptions in the field to descriptions from standard thin sections as viewed with a light microscope. Most of the book is devoted to the description and classification of the microscopic characteristics of soils.
All pedologists and particularly those geologists concerned with the study of sediments, general soil scientists and students will find Soil Structure and Fabric an interesting addition to the study of soils.
