Abstract

This study aims a) to investigate the stoniness (relative volume of stones and boulders) of representative forest soils in central Sweden, b) to evaluate the possibilities to predict soil stoniness with non-destructive surface penetration methods, particularly the rod penetration method suggested by Viro in 1952. The general evaluation of surface penetration methods revealed that large errors in very stony soils cannot be avoided. It is inherent in the method and not caused by sampling. This conclusion may lower expectations that ground-penetrating radar systems will become useful for predicting stoniness
