Soil Structure Library

Soil structure – the spatial arrangement of pores and solid material in soil – it is shaped by all the physical, chemical and biological processes within soil.

Soil structure is an ideal indicator for soil quality and soil functions.

The Soil Structure Library – allows researchers to upload their 3D images of soil structure typically obtained from X-ray tomography. Images are analyzed by a standardized procedure to characterize pore structure in terms of pore size distribution, pore connectivity as well as shape and extend of pore-solid interfaces. This service is for free.
