The sum total of all the soils is termed as the "pedosphere". The pedosphere is the skin of the Earth and only develops when there is a dynamic interaction between the atmosphere (air in and above the soil), biosphere (living organisms), lithosphere (unconsolidated regolith and consolidated bedrock) and the hydrosphere (water in, on and below the soil). The pedosphere is the foundation of life on this planet. There is a realization that the pedosphere needs to be distinctly recognized as a dynamic interface of all terrestrial ecosystems and be integrated into the Earth System Science knowledge sphere. Also, the pedosphere needs to be studied, valued, enhanced and treated in a sustainable and an ethical manner.


Since its inception in 1999, Pedosphere.com aimed to become a repository of Soil Science knowledge through partnerships with major international organizations and also be an active player in global Soil Science education by creating high quality, interactive resources that engage Soil Science students, instructors and professionals.

I am currently conducting research on 'Global Soil Science Issues of the 21st-Century' by building a database with titles, abstracts and keywords of major issues.

Follow the link to see the list and abstracts of Global Soil Science issues.

It is also possible to search the titles, abstracts and keywords from the records through this link.
