Hydric Soils

This course for environmental professionals serves as an introduction or refresher on hydric soils, with a focus on understanding the current field indicators of hydric soils in the United States (USDA-NRCS), the basis for the U.S Army Corps of Engineers’ soil descriptions. During the morning classroom session, we will review basic soil descriptors including color, texture, and soil development, specifically hydric characteristics and redoximorphic features. In the afternoon field session, we will learn to apply these indicators to soils. Bring available field equipment as well as a bag lunch; wear footwear appropriate for muddy conditions.
