Cartographic study of the soil-geographical regularities within the Amur basin

V.V. Yermoshin and N.F. Pshenichnikova

We have generated the «Prevailing soils» geoinformation layer, the base for the general-purpose soil map for the Amur river basin encompassing the trans-boundary territories of Russia, China and Mongolia. It relies on the principle of maximum possible retention of information from initial soil maps, and on unification of soil-cartographic material. We demonstrate the geographical regularities of soil occurrence within the entire basin, and the specific character of its separate regions.
