The visions of the Universal Soil Classification System (USCS) are to establish non-natural soil classification system and to set up practical management strategies of anthropogenic soils.

There has been demand for standard soil classification at global scale. One of main purposes in USCS is acceptance and integration of unique soil classification systems from various nations. In Korea, one of most distinguishable phenomena in soils is increase of anthropogenic soils by adding alien soils on an initial soil surface to improve soil conditions for agricultural or constructional purposes. Therefore, it is urgent to collect anthropogenic soil data and classify soils into new orders.

The objectives of anthropogenic soil research (2012 ~) are

1) Investigation of micromorphology from each layer of anthropogenic soils,

2) Investigation of changes in soil water infiltration on anthropogenic soils and

3) Investigation of changes in soil structure from on anthropogenic soils.
