Question 1: It’s time to put your map reading skills to the test! Download the attached USGS 7.5-minute quadrangle map and set of questions and let’s go for a ride!

Question 2: Visit the Natural Resources Conservation Service website online at https://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/site/soils/home/ . Using any of the tools provided by the Soil Survey, explore the site fully to find TWO different soil types/locations in the United States to compare and contrast. The successful answer will fully describe the soil type found at both locations. Your answer should describe the factors involved in their formation (think textbook factors and apply them here), being sure to describe and illustrate how these types of soils form, not just list them. Describe the different kind of parent material and geological conditions that are responsible for the soil. Explain what the soils are good for, used for, or known for. Last, describe the similarities between your two soils and what is responsible for those similarities. It is likely you will need to research the locations a little online to help flesh out some of your response. [To help you here, you will likely find very detailed information on two different local soils. These are sub-orders of major soil orders. The NRCS has a page dedicated to the major soil orders, too: https://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/main/soils/survey/class/maps/. Refer to this for more general characteristics, which may be helpful to you in understanding and describing your sub-orders.]
