Expired 2019 PAEP Annual Conference

Pre-Conference Soil Science Short Course

Understanding the (Soil) Science of the Hydric Soil Indicators

Wednesday, May 8, 2019 – 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

The use of the Hydric Soil Indicators into three-parameter wetland delineations has raised the bar on understanding the role of soils in wetland determinations. However, like any advancement in scientific application, the divide between intent and application can be wide, as field practitioners struggle to comprehend the intention of the many-nuanced and often-updated hydric soil indicator definitions. In this one-day workshop, we will review the science that drives the hydric soil indicators and then put that knowledge to use in the field, where special attention will be placed on understanding the nuances of the indicator criteria. We’ll also demonstrate a new approach to monitoring reducing conditions in soils, that is both cost effective and easy to deploy. SoilHub instructors include Mike Callahan, CPSS; Gary Jellick, CPSS; Dr. John Wah; Joe Valentine; and Steve Dadio, CPSS.

The cost for this course (including all materials, morning refreshments, lunch, and afternoon break) is $99 for PAEP and PCPG members and $129 for non-members.
