Soils, sediments, geology

Soils, sediments, geology

Soil science and geology belong to the fields where a whole range of our measurement methods are used. In the field of geology e.g. pores play an important role for various processes, whereas sediments are often characterized by particle size and particle shape. Small pores e.g. micropores in humus often play a characteristic role in soils. Soil samples belong to complex types of samples because they consist of mixtures of very different composition.
