The module focuses on potential uses of Field Indicators of Hydric Soils to assess hydrologic characteristics of individual wetlands. This module does not teach about the Field Indicators themselves, but rather the benefits of hydrologic characterization and considerations for the use of the Field Indicators in onsite decision making. Notes: It is not the objective of this module to provide training on the field Indicators themselves. Training on field indicators is available in Module 10 of this ASWM Hydric Soils Online Training Series. To view module #10, please return to the ASWM.org training webpage, where there is a link to that module. If you are not familiar with the basics of hydric soils, we recommend that you complete the earlier modules in the series prior to participating in Modules 10, 11 and 12 to optimize your learning experience.
Target audience: Wetland field practitioners who need expertise in hydric soils and seek to understand how hydric soils are formed and how to recognize and interpret the information they provide when observed in the field.
