2017 PAPSS Summer Field Trip
Soils of the Piedmont – Ridge & Valley – Applachian Plateau
The Pennsylvania Association of Professional Soil Scientists is planning a two day field trip to view soils of Southeastern PA. These are the same field sites of the 2017 NE Pedology Field Trip that the students from universities in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast will visit this year. Many of the sites have been sampled by the USDA-NRCS with lab data available from Lincoln. Day one will be the non-glaciated soils of the Piedmont. Day two will be the glaciated soils of the Ridge and Valley and the Appalachian Plateau. A bus will be provided for transportation. The trip will start and return to the Quakertown area.
