Abstract

Over the past hundred years, the science of soil survey has shed light on the nature and distribution of soils in the United States. From the beginning, the National Cooperative Soil Survey (NCSS) - the nationwide partnership of federal, regional, state, and local agencies and institution involved in soil inventory-addressed soil conservation and agricultural production needs. Today, NCSS apply to a wide range of natural resource and environmental management applications, as the soil information "customer base" has grown and diversified with the emergence of new environmental problems and natural resource issues.
