Munsell Soil Color Charts

Model: HM-519
Price: $205.50

HM-519 Munsell Soil Color Charts were developed with the U.S. Soil Conservation Service for classifying soil color, but may also be used for rocks, archeological 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 and SE Asia are 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 all included. Color chips are mounted on neutral gray, 7.25x4.25in (184x108mm) water-resistant pages in an 8x6in (203x152mm) loose-leaf binder.
