Abstract : The microscopic structure of soils in vertical and horizontal sections is different. That is why for proper micromorphological characterization of soil, oriented slides are necessary, made from samples with unperturbed composition. Repeated slides should be made of analogous, monotypical micro zones of soil horizon. Slides from sections differing in properties of soil profile are incomparable. When studying surface phenomena on mineral grains, pores, cracks, structural aggregates, etc., it is advisable to observe all the stages of slide preparation. (Author)
