The landform classification following Meybeck et al. (2001) presents relief classes, which are cal-culated based on the relief roughness. Roughness and elevation are classified based on a DEM according to static thresholds, with a given window size. The landform classification following Iwahashi and Pike (2007) present relief classes which are classified using an unsupervised nested-means algorithm and a three part geometric signature.
The second day of the Introduction to Soil Classification Course is happening today at Shuttleworth College. The 12 delegates have gone out into the field to practice some of the skills they have learnt during the first day and a half
The latest Working with Soil Training Course, An Introduction to Soil Classification, got underway at 11am this morning at Shuttleworth College.
12 delegates are spending the next 2 days learning from the experienced tutors, John Hollis, Dick Thompson, Dr Bob Jones and Dr Alan Lilly.
The Society was proud to sponsor Dr Emilia Urbanek for her participation in the Soapbox Science 2015 Event held in Swansea on Saturday 6th June.
Emilia's presentation “Soil carbon – we can’t afford to lose it” was supported with a number of props and even a soil cake.
The event was a big success drawing almost 800 visitors.
