Part of: Probabilistic Characterization of Soil Properties: Bridge Between Theory and Practice


A probabilistic characterization of site soil properties can be achieved with sparse site-specific data by augmenting them with data available from other sites in the region having the same geologically charactertistic landform. This paper summarizes important concepts of landform characterization, presents pertinent updating equations, discusses soil profile development, and includes an illustrative, site-specific application of the method.
