The PSR+ spectroradiometer from Spectral Evolution with EZ-ID sample identification software can be an important tool for identifying clays in soil. Soil analysis using a full range UV/VIS/NIR spectroradiometer with a 350-2500nm spectral range is fast, non-destructive, affordable, and doesn’t involve hazardous chemicals. With the handheld sample contact probe, soil spectra can be collected in the field from outcrops or a soil pit. Sample identification software running on a tablet or laptop matches high resolution target scans against two known sample libraries—the USGS and SpecMIN libraries. A researcher is able to see the absorption features characteristic of clays.
