A new way for soils designation and linkage to a reference system. Mandatory tool for correlating and transmitting rich information. From now on, replaces the French soils classification of 1967. A clear and renewed language, a practical and efficient tool.
Not only the "main soils of Europe" are considered, but also soils located at the south and east margins of this continent, and soils largely displayed in Middle East, in North Africa, etc.
Mandatory for scientists and engineers who have to deal with soils and for teachers in universities and high schools in agronomics.
