ESGR Soils

Veatch classified soil types according to his unique types. Another soil scientist, Stephen Shetron, classified the ESGR in 1963 according to national soil types. Shetron's work became part of the Livingston County Soil Survey. The next step for this project will be to reconcile these two soil classifications. Veatch's classification is more detailed, but Shetron's will compare with other sites. Having both types of information available will provide both generality and site-specific information.
