Descriptive field symbols for inped soil macropores



Descriptive field symbols for inped soil macropores



Communications in Soil Science and Plant Analysis 17(12): 1391-1398



A short hand notation for depicting inped soil macropores is presented. By utilizing symbols for macropore diameter, facial shape, pore length, inped shape and pore orientation; it is possible to quickly portray inped field macropores. Circles, ellipses, and triangles of differing dimensions are used to symbolize round, elliptical, and irregular facial shaped pores of different diameters. The pore length and orientation are symbolized by line length and line direction.
