• 大类 : 农林科学 - 1区
• 小类 : 土壤科学 - 2区
Pedometrics has great potential to provide scientific support to international policy-oriented initiatives around global environmental problems. While we continue to contribute to contemporary initiatives, including 4 per mille, Land Degradation Neutrality and Global Soil Mapping, we are moving from mapping soil properties to mapping and monitoring of soil functions from the field to global scales. Consequently, we have been facing various scientific challenges, including linking with earth observation data, space-time modelling, big data, machine learning and other artificial intelligence techniques, sampling optimization for calibration and validation of new emerging technologies.
This VSI is dedicated to present the proceedings of the conference Pedometrics 2019, held in Guelph, Canada. However, the VSI is open for submission to all researchers. We welcome scientists to submit their latest research related to methodological, instrumental and other developments in the field of Pedometrics. This also includes opinion and position papers on Pedometrics and research demonstrating the importance of Pedometrics for societal issues and international initiatives, such as Soil Security, 4 per Mille and the Sustainable Development Goals.
