Advanced Hydric Soils, Hydrology, and Regional Indicators (Eastern Mountains / Piedmont)
Participants will be shown the finer points of hydric soil identification using the nationally approved “Field Indicators of Hydric Soils in the United States”, latest edition. Participants will see examples in the field of different hydric soils (sandy and non-sandy) in several types of wetland systems within the Piedmont/Eastern Mountain Region. Participants will learn the relationship and morphological characteristics of wetland hydrology as it relates to hydric soils. You will be able to discern the differences of flash, infrequent hydrology associated with uplands and the frequent long duration hydrology associated with wetlands. Also, the course will deal with situations such as drought, newly created hydric soils, and drained hydric soils.
Emphasis will be place on learning the technical format and nuances associated with identifying hydric soils using the “Field Indicators of Hydric Soils in the U.S.” latest edition.
This course will be held in the field with multiple study locations and hands-on demonstrations and examples.
This course may meet the requirements for GADOT pre-qualified consultants. GADOT considers course substitutions on a case-by-case basis.
