ABSTRACT The success of soil prediction by VIS-NIR-SWIR spectroscopy has led to considerable investment in large soil spectral libraries. The aims of this study were 1) to develop a soil VIS-NIR-SWIR spectroscopy approach using legacy soil samples to improve spectral soil information in a regional scale; (2) to compare six spectral preprocessing techniques; and (3) to compare the performance of linear and non-linear multivariate models for prediction of sand and clay content. A total of 1,534 legacy soil samples, stored […]

ABSTRACT Soil reflectance spectroscopy has become an innovative method for soil property quantification supplying data for studies in soil fertility, soil classification, digital soil mapping, while reducing laboratory time and applying a clean technology. This paper describes the implementation of a Graphical User Interface (GUI) using R named AlradSpectra. It contains several tools to process spectroscopic data and generate models to predict soil properties. The GUI was developed to accomplish tasks such as perform a large range of spectral preprocessing […]

ABSTRACT: The study of soils, including their physical and chemical properties, is essential for agricultural management. Soil quality must be maintained to ensure sustainable production of food and conservation of natural resources. In this context, soil mapping is important to provide spatial information, which can be performed using remote sensing (RS) techniques. Modeling through use of satellite data is uncertain regarding the amplitude of replicability of the models. The aim of this study was to develop a quantification model for […]

Assessment of Digital Elevation Model for Digital Soil Mapping in a Watershed with Gently Undulating Topography

Jean Michel Moura-Bueno, Ricardo Simão Diniz Dalmolin, Alexandre ten Caten, Luis Fernando Chimelo Ruiz, Priscila Vogelei Ramos, André Carnieletto Dotto


ABSTRACT Terrain attributes (TAs) derived from digital elevation models (DEMs) are frequently used in digital soil mapping (DSM) as auxiliary covariates in the construction of prediction models. The DEMs and information extracted from it may be limited with regard to the spatial resolution and error magnitude, and can differ in the behavior of terrain features. The objective of this study was to evaluate the quality and limitations of free DEM data and to evaluate a topographic survey (TS) underlying the […]

Potential of Spectroradiometry to Classify Soil Clay Content

André Carnieletto Dotto, Ricardo Simão Diniz Dalmolin, Alexandre ten Caten, Jean Michel Moura-Bueno


ABSTRACT Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) is a fast and cheap alternative for soil clay, but needs further investigation to assess the scope of application. The purpose of the study was to develop a linear regression model to predict clay content from DRS data, to classify the soils into three textural classes, similar to those defined by a regulation of the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply. The DRS data of 412 soil samples, from the 0.0-0.5 m layer, […]

Digital mapping of soil properties: particle size and soil organic matter by diffuse reflectance spectroscopy

André Carnieletto Dotto, Ricardo Simão Diniz Dalmolin, Fabrício de Araújo Pedron, Alexandre ten Caten, Luis Fernando Chimelo Ruiz


Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) can be used as an alternative in identifying and quantifying some soil properties such as particle size and soil organic matter (SOM). This technique may be an alternative to quantifying those properties in a large volume of soil samples since it is faster and less costly and does not produce chemical residues. The aim of this study was to develop models using multiple linear regression analysis to predict the content of clay, sand, silt, and SOM […]
