      Ecological Site Description Report

    • Currently at English Edit

Hovenweep National Monument


Capitol Reef National Park

  • Spatial and Attribute data are posted to WSS

  • Digital Map Finished Product is complete

  • Draft Manuscript has been circulated

  • ESDs are in draft form awaiting approval

  • ESD report is in draft form


Held Scoping Meeting in April

Research Permit Obtained

Reconnaissance of riparian areas started in August

Premapping started

Zion National Park


  • Mapping Considerations

    • More detailed mapping in high use areas

    • Detailed mapping on private inholdings

    • Note springs and related soils

    • 1 mm (#100) sieve data needed for hydrologic modeling

      • Surface and first underlying horizon

      • Prefer to store in NASIS

Zion National Park


  • FY 14

    • Complete QC report

    • Submit draft series

    • Complete manuscript

    • QC Spatial data

    • Submit for Correlation

Kane County Soil Survey


  • Submitted for approval

    • Mellenthin very gravelly loam, 1 to 25 percent slopes

    • Klondike sandy clay loam, 2 to 15 percent slopes

  • Other potential projects

    • Gypsiorthids-Gypsiorthids, shallow complex, 1 to 50 percent slopes

    • Showlow very cobbly clay loam, 1 to 15 percent slopes
