Pedology is a field that focuses on soil morphology, genesis, classification, and mapping. Students in pedology must learn to be keen observers, who are able to accurately evaluate the characteristics of the soil. This portfolio focuses on efforts to improve students’ skills at describing soil color, texture, and morphologic features.
