Soil science is the study of soil as a natural resource on the surface of the earth including soil formation, classification and mapping; physical, chemical, biological, and fertility properties of soils; and these properties in relation to the use and management of soils. [1]

It should be distinguished from Soil mechanics: Soil mechanics is a discipline that applies principles of engineering mechanics to predict the mechanical behavior of soils. Foundations, embankments, retaining walls, earthworks and underground openings are all designed in part with theories from soil mechanics. [2] see in Category:Geotechnics
