Publications in this collection provide information on soil pollution, erosion, soil stabilization, and soil inventories and surveys. Healthy soils sustain plant communities, keep sediment out of streams, and keep dust out of the air. BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing all land uses and all activities that potentially affect soil resources. This management makes soil resource information combined with sound science essential to ensure sustainable resource management.
