A GIS method for modeling landscapes to predict total soil depth and the depth of different soil layers is presented. The method is based on terrain analysis using a DEM and the combined use of the Topographic Wetness Index (TWI) also known as the Compound Topographic Index (CTI) and the Multi-resolution Valley Bottom Flatness index (MrVBF). Examples of the output for several catchments show that soil depth can be predicted at the catchment scale. Only preliminary field checking and validation… CONTINUE READING
