Soil vs Land

I summarize the views from Ruel Lino Cruz [see Note], Sumana Ray and Naresh Chaudhari, on the basic difference between: soil and land.

  • Land is the solid part of Earth above tide level - including volcanoes & artificial ponds, where the liquid part (below sea level) we called it Oceans, Seas, Lakes, etc.
  • Soil is the "material" on Land. In agriculture, it is measured by the surface area it covers and its depth.
  • The characteristics of Soil change in respect of external forces (such as weather conditions) across the time. How long it would last depends on its vitability.
