Abstract

Topographic variables derived from a 10 m DEM can explain 51% of the variability in A-horizon depth and 44% of the variability in depth to carbonates for a hillslope in western Minnesota. Spatial patterns of A-horizon depth and depth-to-carbonates can be mapped using statistical relationships with terrain variables. Soil-terrain modelling techniques may be a cost-effective means of mapping soil variability and defining common management areas for site specific agricultural management for certain landscapes. -from Authors
