Abstract: The two objectives established for these proceedings are: (1) to summarize the principles and procedures of probabilistic characterization of soil properties in a readily understood manner rather than a highly theoretical treatment; and (2) to present examples of the applications of probabilistic characterization in the form of case studies. State-of-the-art reviews cover the need, principles, and application of the methods of probabilistic characterization of soil properties. Case studies include statistical characteristics of Indiana soil properties, coefficient of variation in
