Yellowstone National Park Report
Yellowstone National Park is predominantly underlain by two volcanic rock types, the Tertiary andesitic rocks and the Quarternary rhyolitic rocks. Data concerning the nature and properties of the soils derived from these rocks is limited. This study provides a detailed soil characterization analysis of benchmark soils and associated interpretations for use by both research and operations personnel. Data from this study will also further the knowledge of soils in mountain environments.
