Hydric Soils Course and Field Indicators

 

The course is an introduction to describing hydric soils and the use and meaning of the regional field indicators for hydric soils. The course is designed for the licensed profession (engineer, surveyor, geologist), soil scientist, and wetland scientist.

This class will teach you how to effectively describe soils, interpret soil reports, and who use the Hydric Soil Indicators in the Regional Supplements to the Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual. You will learn the basic processes that take place in saturated soil and how to "read the story" in a soil profile.

The training includes a field introduction to identifying layers, distinguishing concentrations and depletions, and preparing hydric soil descriptions from soil profiles. Each student will have a chance to describe and interpret a series of soils profiles and hydrological systems. This workshop is 50/50 lecture/field.

Instructor: Brian Oram

Cost: $310
PDH Hours: 8
Location: Wilkes University and Lehman Township
Time: 9 AM-5 PM
