Advanced Training Workshop for Soil Evaluators and LSP

Reading Different New England Landscapes #1400
Click here for description.

An important and essential skill for Soil Evaluators is to be able to interpret the landscape and assess the underlying soil/geologic conditions before digging the deep holes. Identifying the different landforms and understanding the geologic processes (glaciers, rivers, marine, wind, etc.) that formed the underlying sediments is key. With this knowledge one can visualize the landscape in a three dimensional perspective, alerting the evaluator to underling restrictive layers, presence of silt and clay, potential for a high water table, altered/disturbed soil conditions, etc.
