Description

Technology now plays a vital role in soil improvement across different functions. The Soil Science and Technology - Advanced Technologies for Soil Applications course is the last in a suite of courses that provides detailed and expert information on technological innovations used in the field of soil science for improved soil management. This course begins with a discussion on the orders of soil survey and the application of remote sensing in soil surveys.

Next, you will learn about advanced technologies such as the Geographic Information System (GIS) from its architecture and data model. You will also analyze Global Positioning System (GPS) errors and aspects of geostatistical modeling. Then, you will study the mechanism of Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS) as well as the basics of VisNIR-DRS applications. You will also discuss the portable X-ray fluorescence (PXRF) soil applications and the process of Digital Soil Mapping. Finally, you will learn about modeling continuous and categorical variables, along with the pedotransfer functions.

This free online course provides you with seasoned knowledge on managing and improving soil performance using modern technological innovations designed for soil applications. This course will be of great interest to students, researchers, pedologists, and anyone with an interest in modern soil technology for enhanced soil productivity.
