This video describes the von Post Humification method to determine organic soil decomposition and characteristics using the von Post Humification scale.

The von Post scale is used in modeling to predict bulk density, hydraulic conductivity, and n-value in organic soils. Three aspects of Soil Taxonomy have significantly influenced the National Cooperative soil survey (NCSS): applying the concept of a soil polypedon, making the soil series level the lowest category, and quantifying definitions and systematically naming soils.

In the United States, these surveys were once published in book form for individual counties by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. Today, soil surveys are no longer published in book form; they are published to the web and accessed on NRCS Web Soil Survey where a person can create a custom soil survey.
