Abstract

The San Dimas Technology and Development Center of the Forest Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture, developed the soil-disturbance field guide as a soil monitoring tool to identify soildisturbance classes. The field guide provides detailed descriptions and photographic examples - over a wide range of climatic and vegetative conditions - of the undisturbed soil condition and the three soil-disturbance classes. The field guide is not only a training tool but also a tool for individuals, such as soil scientists, silviculturists, contract inspectors, fuel management specialists, and other resource managers to use when conducting field soil-disturbance assessments.
