Abstract

Agricultural soils of selected regions of Southwestern Karnataka, Peninsular India, were subjected to systematic mineralogical characterization along with the study of soil physical properties. Physicalproperties such as soil texture and micro porosity were studied using particle size analyses and positronannihilation lifetime analysis (PALS) technique, respectively. The latter was used to analyze micro porosityof agricultural soil. Both major and minor minerals were identified and confirmed by some analyticaltechniques like thin section study, powder X- ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy and Fouriertransform infrared spectroscopy
