Welcome to the Second Edition of the Australian Soil Classification (2016). The information provided here is intended as an on-line facility for all interested parties to assist with soil classification work. It is recommended, however, if any extended work is to be undertaken, that obtaining the book would be beneficial as it is convenient to use in the field where most soil description and classification takes place. The print version of The Australian Soil Classification is available from CSIRO Publishing.

There are a few minor errors in the print version of the Second Edition. These errors are corrected in this web version. An erratum is available for download here.
