Description

This unique resource is written for students and practitioners in the field of soil science who must learn or review basic mathematical operations faced when studying or working with soils. Unlike other texts of its kind, Math for Soil Scientists explains the importance of each concept explored, discusses the theory behind each concept, and presents the method for solving each problem. Designed to cover all of the most common equations in the soil science field, from calculating particle size distribution to conducting simple hypothesis testing, this text provides the reader with many opportunities for practice in working out sample problems of each required math concept. This easy-to-read text approaches every concept in a step-by-step fashion, allowing the reader to fully understand how to find the solution to each sample problem.show more
