The subject of this work is the modification and specification of an approach to detail the estimation of soil
crack network characteristics. The modification aims at accounting for the corrected soil crack volume based on the corrected
shrinkage geometry factor compared to known estimates of crack volume and shrinkage geometry factor. The mode
of the correction relies on recent results of the soil reference shrinkage curve. The main exposition follows the preliminary
brief review of available approaches to dealing with the geometry of soil crack networks and gives a preliminary brief
summary of the approach to be modified and specified. To validate and illustrate the modified approach the latter is used
in the analysis of available data on soil cracking in a lysimeter.
