Soil Magnetism: Applications in Pedology, Environmental Science and Agricultureprovides a systematic, comparative, and detailed overview of the magnetic characterization of the major soil units and the observed general relationships, possibilities, and perspectives in application of rock magnetic methods in soil science, agriculture, and beyond.

Part I covers detailed magnetic and geochemical characterization of major soil types according to the FAO classification system, with Part II covering the mapping of topsoil magnetic signatures on the basis of soil magnetic characteristics. The book concludes with practical examples on the application of magnetic methods in environmental science, agriculture, soil pollution, and paleoclimate.

  • Provides an overview of the major findings of uncontaminated soil profiles and proposes a system of magnetic characteristics
  • Elucidates the relationship between geochemical and magnetic characteristics of different soil types, providing a basis for wider recognition and application of soil magnetism in classical pedagogical characterization of soils
  • Covers the peculiarities of the main taxonomic soil groups in terms of magnetic mineralogy and depth variations in concentration, grain size, and phase composition of iron oxides
Neli Jordanova graduated with a degree in geophysics and obtained her PhD at Faculty of Physics of Sofia University St. Kl. Ohridski. Since 1996 she has worked at the National Institute of Geophysics, Geodesy and Geography of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and presently she is a Professor there. She was awarded the degree Doctor of ...
