dc.description.abstract The significant spatial variability of the soil cover results from the differentaial impact of individual soil-forming factors. In this book the pedo-variability is presented in form of soil sequences which are characteristic for particular types of landscapes. The fourth part of Soil Sequences Atlas contains description of 75 pedons (with soil profile photo, description of morphology, laboratory data) grouped in 15 chapters representing different environmental settings specific for Central or East Europe and Caucasia. The Atlas begins with the presentation of a pedo-landscape dominated by alluvial and gleying processes (Vistula River delta in Poland). The next is a group of chapters devoted to mountainous regions with compilation of different soil-formin processes, e.g. podzoliztion (Karkonosze Mts., Poland) or accumulation of humus (Trialeti Range, Georgia). The second part of book is focused on issues related to slope processes in different landscapes - from karst sinkholes in the Pre-Ural forest-steppe (Russia), throughout loess plateaus (Hungary, Belarus) and glacial morainic plateaus (Latvia, Lithuania, Poland) to the areas with glacial curvilineations or covered by outwash plains (Poland). The collected data is intended as a useful educational tool in teaching soil science, supporting understanding of the reasons for the variability of soil cover, and also as a WRB classification guideline. It is intended to be useful not only for students but also by practitioners in agriculture, forestry, environmental protection and landscape planning. The Atlas was developed as part of the EU Erasmus+ FACES project (Freely Accessible Central European Soil).
