Field Trip Sites: (Field Report due next Wednesday?)

Tuesday:Upland = Site A

Lowland = Site B

Report: Introduction (briefly summarize methods used), Results(include N data in kg/ha, soil series and map accuracy, productivity, land use)

Soils: think about productivity, appropriate uses, inappropriate

uses, sensitive areas, water quality….

Microclimate: any effects with land use changes?

Bulk Density Calculations:

Bulk Density = dry soil mass/volume

Mineral Soil: core volume of 2 rings = 137.4 cm3 (πr2 h=vol)

Organic horizons: average depth of 4 measurments x 18 cm x 11.5 cm

(area of book)

= volume

bulk density = dry weight / volume

Soils and Microclimate Report

~ 2 pages

Include: Introduction with brief review of methods

Paragraph about soils found on site vs. soils map

Calculate TOTAL SOIL N Content for the 2 soils of your lab day

Be sure to briefly show your calculations!

Paragraph on productivity of the 2 soils (be sure to consider the N content as well as other factors)

(You will use some other N data later in the water module)
