Mapping soils, vegetation, and landforms : an integrative physical geography field experience

Abstract

The study area lies within a complex, interlobate moraine. Fieldwork involved mapping in groups of 2 or 3, as well as soil and vegetation sampling. Spatial data products assembled and used in the project included topographic maps, a digital elevation model (DEM), aerial photographs, and NRCS (National Resource Conservation Service) soil maps. Most of the soils are dry and sandy, with the main differentiating characteristic being the amount of, and depth to, subsurface clay bands (lamellae) or gravelly zones. Ecological data suggest that the oak forests will, baring major disturbance, become increasingly dominated by red maple
