Title: Soil chemical and physical properties that differentiate urban land-use and cover types

Author: Pouyat, R.V.; Yesilonis, I.D.; Russell-Anelli, J.; Neerchal, N.K.

Date: 2007

Source: Soil Science of America Journal. 71(3): 1010-1019.

Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: We investigated the effects of land use and cover and surface geology on soil properties in Baltimore, MD, with the objectives to: (i) measure the physical and chemical properties of surface soils (0?10 cm) by land use and cover; and (ii) ascertain whether land use and cover explain differences in these properties relative to surface geology. Mean and median values of each variable measured across all plots showed that soil properties varied considerably. Chemical properties generally varied more than physical properties.
