The color properties of the sod-lithogenic soil on the red-brown clays of the recultivation site at the Nicopol manganese ore basin have been studied. The quantitative characterization of color channels intensity in the humidity gradient at the different depts of the soil layers has been done. The statistic significant dependence of the color channels intensity from the humidity has been revealed. The data on the intensity of the red channel have been found to be more informative for assessment of the soil moisture on the sod-lithogenic soil on the red-brown clays. Relatively homogeneous sites have been selected according the changes of the color channels intensity in the soil profile which mark genetic soil horizons of the sod-lithogenic soil on the red-brown clays. The dinamic of the soil formation processes of the sod-lithogenic soil on the red-brown clays has been traced with the help of the 3-D diagram.
