Objectifs
Based on the problem statement I have identified the following objectives which are represented in a summarized format : 1. To develop an optimized soil sampling scheme that preserves the natural distribution of soil forming factors in the study area, in the eastern slopes of Mt. Kenya. 2. To develop an ensemble model for predicting of important soil properties (i.e soil organic carbon, base cations, pH, aluminium and particle size distribution). 3. To demonstrate the usefulness of the derived database for mapping soil properties for the study area. 4. To classify the visited soils and validate the soil types in the KENSOTER soil units of the study area. 5. To compare differences of soil properties in different WRB Reference soil groups and the implications of applications for management purposes in the study area.
