SWS-PNW Podcast Summer 2011

As I've mentioned in previous updates, the Society of Wetland Scientists' Pacific Northwest chapter has a podcast that rolls out every so often. This summer's edition features Dan Ufnar discussing Field Indicators of Hydric Soils in the US (Version 7). SWS-PNW's provided abstract is as follows:

"In this episode, Dan Ufnar with the Washington Society of Professional Soil Scientists discusses the Field Indicators of Hydric Soils in the U.S. (Version 7). This technical document is a required tool of the wetland professional who is attempting to identify hydric soils using any of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers regional manuals. Ufnar provides a few tips on how non-soil scientists can dive into Version 7 without getting overwhelmed. He also provides great explanations on changes to the Version 7 and some of those methods and indicators it describes. Make sure to stay current with the Field Indicators of Hydric Soil by periodically checking the NRCS's Hydric Soils website and reviewing the most-current errata, which provides the most current updates to the manual. To get practical hands-on hydric soils identification training, sign up today for training in your area (e.g., Coastal Training ProgramWetland Training InstitutePortland State University)."
