Investigations of physico-chemical and optical properties of soils in the Southern testing area (Budzhakskaia Steppe, the area between the Prut and the Dniester rivers) allowed us to distinguish five groups of soils with reflectance coefficients (RC) varying from 12.9 to 26.4 per cent. The most significant RC differences between the groups of soils were found in the green (500—540 nm) and red (610—690 mn) ranges of the spectrum, which makes possible classification of soils based on the multispectral and integral panchromatic images.
