Learn the basics of how to describe and analyze urban soils scientifically using your senses and low-cost equipment (for example, trowels, spades, field pH tester, colour charts, and vinegar). There will be a brief introduction to what soils are and how they work. Emphasis will be on figuring out and interpreting soil properties like soil colour, texture, pH, structure, and rough carbonate content.

Workshop taught by Prof. Salvatore Engel-Di Mauro, a.k.a. "saed", of SUNY New Paltz Geology Department.
