The probabilistic characteristics of spatial variability of soil properties are studied based on in-situ measurement results from a natural and a man-made soil deposit, where extended field test programs have been carried out. The method of moments and a nonlinear regression procedure are used to estimate probability distributions, correlation and cross-correlation functions exhibited by the normalized fluctuations of various soil properties within homogeneous soil layers. These results can be used as guidelines for stochastic analysis of similar soil deposits.
