AIR PHOTOS ILLUSTRATING THE ORIGIN, DISTRIBUTION AND AIRPHOTO IDENTIFICATION OF THE UNITED STATES SOILS

THE AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS PRESENTED ILLUSTRATE THE AIRPHOTO TECHNIQUES FOR IDENTIFYING SOILS DESCRIBED IN THE PARENT PUBLICATION. MANY OF THE ILLUSTRATIONS CONSIST OF MATCHED PAIRS OF ADJACENT AIRPHOTOS, SO PLACED AS TO ENABLE THE READER TO OBTAIN FROM THEM AN OPTICAL RECEPTION OF THE THIRD, OR VERTICAL, DIMENSION. THIS CAN BE DONE WITH A STEREOSCOPIC VIEWER. THE AIRPHOTO SOIL IDENTIFICATION TECHNIQUE DOES NOT DEPEND ENTIRELY UPON THE USE OF STEREOSCOPIC COVERAGE, AS COLOR, DRAINAGE PATTERN, CERTAIN EROSION PATTERNS, VEGETATION, LAND USE, AND EVEN CERTAIN LAND FORMS, ALL OF WHICH ARE THE KEYS TO AIRPHOTO INTERPRETATION, ARE OFTEN DISCERNIBLE ON THE SINGLE PHOTOS AND COUNTY INDEX SHEETS.
