The article is a review of Polish pedological studies carried out on Spitsbergen since 1957. The first part deals with the important papers going through the sections of soil science. Special attention was focused on arctic soil forming processes, physical properties (changes in soil volume, soil movements, thermal features), chemical properties and soil biology. Another part gives the lines for future pedological studies.
