Yellowstone National Park Report
The soil characterization study was initiated in 1980 to identify and describe the major soil areas of Yellowstone National Park. Recent investigations have provided detailed geologic (U.S.G.S., 1972; U.S.G.S., 1972) and vegetation data (Despain, 1980); however, specific soils data and soil interpretations for resource management have been lacking. This study provides for detailed analyses of the major soils with specific emphasis on geologic and vegetative relationships.
