Courses: Soil Science
Soil Science (SOIL)

College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources 

SOIL 304 Fundamentals of Soil Science (4) (3 Lec, 1 3-hr Lab) Origin, development, properties, management of tropical soils; classification of Hawaiian soils. Pre: CHEM 151 or CHEM 171.

SOIL 430 Soil Chemistry (3) (2 Lec, 1 3-hr Lab) Study of soil chemical processes such as weathering, adsorption, precipitation, and ion exchange; causes of soil acidity, alkalinity, and salinity; reactions between soils and fertilizers, pesticides, or heavy metals. Pre: 304 or consent.

SOIL 450 Soil Fertility (4) (3 Lec, 1 3-hr Lab) Principles of plant-soil interactions and nutrient availability relative to soil, chemical, and physical properties. Soil fertility evaluation. Nutrient management for enhanced crop production/minimum environmental pollution. Pre: 304 and CHEM 161.

SOIL 460 Soil Physics (3) (2 Lec, 1 3-hr Lab) An analysis of the size, shape, arrangement, and mineral composition of soil particles and the application of physics to predict soil behavior and performance in the field. Pre: 304 and either PHYS 151 or PHYS 170.

SOIL 461 Soil, Erosion, and Conservation (3) Processes and factors which influence erodibility and determine erosion; principles of erosion control; soil conservation as an element of resource stability and sustainable agriculture. Pre: 304 and consent.

SOIL 604 Advanced Soil Microbiology (4) (3 Lec, 1 3-hr Lab) Study of biochemical and biogeochemical transformations mediated by soil microorganisms, emphasis on processes important to plant growth and development. Pre: 304 and MICR 351, or consent.

SOIL 640 Advanced Soil Chemistry (3) (2 Lec, 1 3-hr Lab) Physio-chemical properties of soils and soil solutions with emphasis on ionic equilibria and surface-solution relationships. Pre: 430 and CHEM 351, or consent.

SOIL 650 Advanced Soil Fertility (4) (2 Lec, 2 3-hr Lab) Soil-plant interactions, emphasis on characteristics of tropical soils and plants influencing nutrient uptake by plants. Diagnostic methods to identify nutrient deficiency and element toxicity. Pre: 450.

SOIL 660 Hydrologic Processes in Soils (3) (2 Lec, 1 3-hr Lab) Hydrologic properties of soils and the processes involved in water infiltration, drainage, and solute transport. Emphasis on measurement of key parameters required for modeling. Pre: either 460 or GG 455, and MATH 243; or consent.

SOIL 670 Soil Formation and Classification (4) (3 Lec, 1 3-hr Lab) Weathering and alteration of rocks, formation of soils, comprehensive review of effects of climate, vegetation, drainage, topography, and time on formation of soils; classification of soils with emphasis on soil taxonomy. Emphasis on tropical soils. Pre: 304 and 430, or consent.

SOIL 671 Soil and Clay Mineralogy (3) (2 Lec, 1 3-hr Lab) Instrumental analysis of soil minerals with emphasis on clay size material. Pre: 304 and 430.
