2009 Revision of the Munsell Soil Color Chart
We finally got our hands on the new 2009 revision of the Munsell Soil Color Chart. We had heard of the changes, and couldn’t wait to see them for ourselves. They’ve made some pretty interesting upgrades. First up is what is now included:
- A new high value, low chroma White page for light colored materials.
- Popular 10Y, 5GY, 5R, and 7.5R charts for various soils (some with more global relevance)
More importantly, the color chips on the 2009 Munsell Soil Color Chart are now flush with the page. That means no more chips falling off and cleaning the pages is a lot easier (new water resistant pages help too). These improvements really make them much better than the older version.
We were kind of surprised that they changed the color of the binder to black. Everybody knows that a Munsell Soil Color Chart binder is blue! I guess it’s the dawn of a new age in soil classification.
