Soil Stratigraphy – Online Short Course Now Available

Glenn Borchardt’s popular “Soil Stratigraphy for Trench Logging” has been adapted to become an online course. This course contains an updated version of the lecture portion of the course he been giving for AEG for many years.

This course is great for students and young professionals looking to learn how to log and describe soils, and also a good refresher for soil scientists and archeologists wanting to improve their skills in describing soils and evaluating their features.

Course Description & Outline

Students will learn how to improve their trench and outcrop logs and descriptions of soils uncovered during geologic hazard investigations for development sites. It comprises six abundantly illustrated lectures: 

1. Soil Science Theory: CTPOT, the factors of soil formation

2. The ABC’s of Soils: Recognizing soil horizons and soil features

3. Preparing excellent trench logs

4. Pedochronology: Bookkeeping for the ages

5. Laboratory methods for pedochronology

6. Soil Tectonics: What faults do to soils; what soils do to faults
