AbstractQuiP is a graphical user interface (GUI) developed in MATLAB to extract and analyze soil surface profile measurements obtained from a needle profiler in a few minutes. Surface roughness parameters can be extracted from any needle profiler with simple modifications to the tool. QuiP calculates many statistics useful in radar remote sensing while generating the profiles. Furthermore, a QuiP function can be used to join several profiles. Long profiles can therefore be created from a short profiler (e.g., 1 m) that is easier to carry and handle in the field. Extraction of profiles by QuiP is repeatable and therefore reduces user's errors from data processing.
