Register: Soil Profile classifiers

URI: http://registry.it.csiro.au/def/soil/au/asls/soil-prof

This register contains a machine-readable representation of the classifiers described in chapter 8 Soil Profile, by R.C. McDonald and R.F. Isbell, in Australian soil and land survey field handbook (3rd edn).

A soil profile is a vertical section of a soil from the soil surface through all its horizons to parent material, other consolidated substrate material or selected depth in unconsolidated material.

The data was converted from the print representation to this linked-data form by Linda Gregory assisted by Simon J D Cox.
