International Committee on Vertisols (ICOMERT)

The International Committee on Vertisols (ICOMERT) was formed to study the Vertisols and improve the classification criteria for these soils from both a genetic as well as practical consequence. The committee was formed in 1980 under the direction of Dr. Juan Comerma, and expanded to include the cold Aridisols and Vertisols. Activities concluded in 1991 with a final report.
