We revisit the book, A Grammar of Color, published by Strathmore Paper in 1921. The second half of the book is dedicated to the color sheets, where Strathmore cover papers are printed with specific colors based on the Munsell Color System and analyzed. In part 15 of this series of excerpts, we look at the colors Brown, Antique Finish, and Grouse Drab.

In our continuing series of conversations with soil experts, we head to the beach to learn about what the soil colors of the +Cape Cod National Seashore  can tell us.

The soils are relatively young and the dunes are constantly migrating, burying adjacent soils and exposing others. Learn more about this ever changing landscape.

We talked with artist and audio engineer Chad Yenney to learn about where he gets his inspiration for his collages and how Munsell color charts came to make an appearance.

When Soil Science Intersects Art: Learn about the soils of the +Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail through the soil paintings of Janis Lang. Janis took her long standing respect for the land and combined it with her love of art and painting by turning soil into a paint element and using it as the medium for her art. Learn about her process and which colors are created by which soil minerals in the Munsell Color Blog. http://munsell.com/color-blog/soil-colors-lewis-clark-national-historic-trail/

The soils of +Carlsbad Caverns National Park and  +White Sands National Monument bring beauty to the New Mexico landscape. We interviewed a soil expert to tell us what is unique about the soils in these parks and how the approach to soil science and management is changing in New Mexico's National Parks.

"Colors are an important tool for identifying soil development and organic matter content."

We continue our series exploring the #soil colors of the National Parks, heading to the Rocky Mountains to speak with Lee A. Neve, a retired Soil Survey Leader for the USDA-NRCS.

Find out what soil science students at the +UW (University of Washington) School of Environmental and Forest Sciences are learning about soil classification using Munsell color books that will help them manage forests someday.

On a sunny afternoon in early April, a group of students crowd around a three-foot-deep hole in the ground and peer down quizzically as I scrape the fresh face of the soil profile with a trowel.
