Soil Color Charts

Supports the following standards: ASTM D2488

Munsell soil color charts were developed with the U.S. soil conservation service for classifying soil color, but may also be used for rocks, archaeological specimens, and other natural products. Munsell charts are a standard tool for geologists, civil engineers, and soil scientists. The tabbed charts include 10R, 7.5R, 5R, 2.5YR, 5YR, 7.5YR, 10YR, 2.5Y, 5Y and 10Y-5GY color ranges. Charts for tropical and semitropical soils, and for Australia, SE Asia are now included. A two page Gley chart for submerged soils covers weak chromas and neutrals of blue and green hues. A white page is used to describe carbonate, silica, gypsum, soluble salt participates and more. Openings between chips allow easy visual comparison with soil samples. Illustrations of soil grain structures, charts for estimating proportions of mottles and coarse fragments, color name diagrams, and instructions are furnished. Color chips are mounted on neutral gray, 7.25 x 4.25" (184 x 108mm) water resistant pages in an 8 x 6" (203 x 152mm) loose-leaf binder.
