The British Society of Soil Science (BSSS) or "BS cubed" as it is fondly known was founded in 1947 by several eminent British soil scientists. It was formed with the aims: to advance the study of soil; to be open to membership from all those with an interest in the study and uses of soil; and to issue an annual publication. In 2010 the Society became an incorporated charity, merging with the Institute of Professional Soil Scientists which continues to deliver the needs of the Society's professional membership.
