Event description

Description

The Alberta Soils Tour is an excellent training opportunity for those working with soils, whether the focus is soil conservation, land reclamation, or agronomy. Experts will provide background on soil formation and the various soil profiles for each of the landscapes encountered during the tour. The tour provides hands-on field opportunities for professional development, learning, and collaboration. In 2019, the Alberta Soils Tour will focus on typical soils of Alberta prairies:

- Black and Dark Brown Chernozems,

- Solonetzic soils,

- Humic Vertisols, and

- Gleysols, including their saline phases

The variety of parent materials covered will include glacial till, glaciolacustrine and recent lacustrine sediments, pre-glacial gravels and various types of bedrock.

The 2019 Alberta Soils Tour would require an overnight stay in Drumheller, AB. To book your accommodation or to see the Tour poster please visit http://www.soilsworkshop.ab.ca/tour.html
