We created the Munsell Calculator for those of you that record only the Munsell color notation (code) in the field when describing soil color, but that require the soil color name in the soil description when preparing boring and test pit logs.
To use the Munsell Calculator, go to Hue 1 - select the appropriate button. Then enter the Hue 2, Value, and Chroma values. The Munsell code will appear in the Code/Color row, along with the soil color name and a color strip. To use a second color to describe the soil color, press the “+” button after entering the code for the first color, and then enter the code for the second color. The calculated soil color(s) name(s) can be copied in two formats – soil color name (code) or soil color name – for further pasting into your logs (desktop users only). If copying two soil colors, they will be separated by the word “to.”
