Advanced Soil Morphology Engineers, Geologists and other Professionals

September 20, 2013 – 9 AM-4 PM
Advanced Soil Morphology for Engineers, PA Sewage Enforcement Officers, Geologists, and other Professionals.
Where is the Water Table?
The course will provide an introduction into the environmental applications of soil science and soil morphology. During the presentation portion of the course, we will discuss the properties and characteristics of a soil, soil formation/ transformation, and soil hydrology. During the field portion of the course, we will be learning how to describe some of the physical properties of a soil (soil texture, structure, consistency, color), identifying soil horizons, and make interpretations related to the movement of water through the soil profile as it relates to on-site wastewater disposal and stormwater management.   The major topics that will be discussed will be “what is and the types of water tables”, redoximorphic features, and using soil morphological data.

Instructor: Brian Oram is a Professional Geologist and Soil Scientist with B.F. Environmental Consultants. He is a licensed professional geologist, licensed Well Driller, Professional Soil Scientist, and licensed Sewage Enforcement Officer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with over 20 years experience in conducting hydrogeological investigations related to water supply development, contaminant migration, wetland mitigation, and land based wastewater disposal systems.
