148 Soil Survey Present and Future: II

Poster Session
SSSA Division: Pedology
The symposium will highlight the emerging needs that soil survey should address and how information produced by the National Cooperative Soil Survey (NCSS) is currently used and how it can be repackaged for multiple uses that support conservation and wise use of soils by the public.  This is also an opportunity to engage a broader community in the discussion of soil survey products  and their impact on food systems, fuel and fiber production, ecosystem function, and climate change during the IYS.  Presenters will come from different disciplines that use soil survey products.
