Soils is another area I have devoted much of my life to over the past several years, and for which I have a lot of passion. I am providing a link to my thesis http://gypsycowgirl.zenfolio.com/faulkner_thesis.pdf for any gluttons or fellow soil nerds.
My project was a study of different C-additions in the form of straw, wood chips, and a woodchip/compost mix applied at three rates each on two reclamation sites. One site was on the Jonah Field and the other on the Pinedale Anticline, both in Sublette County, Wyoming. I have attached the slides I presented during my thesis defense http://gypsycowgirl.zenfolio.com/comparison-of-c-rich-soil-additions-for-reclamation-of.pdf These do not cover all of my results, and some are not self-explanatory, but they do give an overview of the project background, objectives, and key findings.
I have three galleries of photos related to soils. The first is from my thesis work and is entitled C-Addition Project:
The second is from another project I helped out on when I first got to grad school and its gallery is entitled Cattle Project:
The third soils gallery highlights pictures from Labs and Pits
