The Pedometrics section publishes high-quality articles in quantitative soil science, digital soil science, and technology-oriented soil science. Pedometrics is the development and application of statistical and mathematical methods applicable to data analysis problems in soil science.
The areas covered in the Pedometrics section include, but are not limited to:
Digital soil, digital soil-ecosystems
Emergent frontiers in digital soil mapping
New algorithms to model soils
Prediction and modeling of soil properties, soil functions, soil indices, soil ecosystem services
Novel quantitative approaches in soil health, soil security or soil quality
Artificial intelligence (machine learning and deep learning) in soil science
Global soil assessments
Soil science in the cloud
Soil spectroscopy / proximal soil sensing
Ensembles of soil data and models
Data mining of geospatial BIGDATA sets to model soil dynamics
Remote-sensing or geotechnology supported soil assessments
Soil sensor networks to monitor soil change
Modeling and simulation of soil processes
Pedogenic and Earth system modeling
Uncertainty assessment of soil predictions
“Soil in the machine, soil and the machine, soil outside the machine”: Digital soil philosophy and ethics of pedometrics (i.e., new paradigms, worldviews, theories, multi-perspectival voices)
Articles that emphasize novel aspects of digital soil science, transdisciplinary interfaces (e.g., pedometrics-econometrics, pedometrics-digital agriculture, or pedometrics-computer science) or highlight discovery of new insights how soils function and develop are especially invited.
Reports or applied soil science studies that are focused on management are outside the scope of this section. Fundamental empirical pedological studies and research focused on empirical biogeochemical soil processes should be submitted to specialized soil science journals.
Indexed in: Coming Soon
Pedometrics welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Case Report, Classification, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, Erratum, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Pedometrics, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
