Pocket Guide to Hydric Soil Field Indicators – 2017


Almost every indicator has been altered in the National Technical Committee on Hydric Soils’ Version 8.0 of the Field Indicators of Hydric Soils in the United States: A guide for Identifying and Delineating Hydric Soils: new tables; new figures; new Indicators and new terms in the glossary. We’ve taken all of those and updated our Pocket Guide. We have also added updated versions of the indispensable Simplified Keys to Hydric Soil Indicators – now for all ten USACE Regional Supplements.


The new Pocket Guide is the same convenient 4.5″ X 6.75″ size as the version 7 edition. It still contains individual maps for each indicator and added information such as the texture triangle and texture by feel diagram. Over the years we have found that the reduced-size color pictures have added little value to the Pocket Guide because they are seldom used in the field. To keep the cost low, we have eliminated most of the color figures while enlarging the color LRR Map and Figure 6 for depleted matrix.


Since publication of the Pocket Guide – 2017,a few changes are needed.  An errata of the Pocket Guide can be found at: https://www.wetlandtraining.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/6-12-17-errata-v.2.pdf
