Recently theorized, the hydrostructural soil science has appeared in the earth sciences. It emerges from the junction of classical soil science – science naturalistic description of internal hierarchical organizations soil and their distribution in the landscape – with systemic thermodynamic water interacting with the hierarchical structure of the soil. Hydrostructural soil science defines matter and the outlines of this new discipline. The first part, theoretical, this systemic approach applied to the question of the ground and how it led to the thermodynamic formulation of water in the middle of the floor organized and systemic modeling of ground water in the torque Natural or appointed organizations. A second part, methodological, is devoted to the description of Excel
spreadsheets programmed to determine the characteristics of the hydrostructural pedology pédostructure. These Excel sheets are available for download (below) The book highlights the underlying concepts of hydrostructural soil science, its goals and the role it must play in the agri-environmental sciences.
