Volcanic Ash Soils in the Pacific Northwest: Distribution, Properties, and Management Grant uri icon



  • Forest soils of the Inland Pacific Northwest region have been strongly influenced by volcanic ash. As a result, these soils possess very unique properties that influence their use and management. The purpose of this study is to learn more about the distribution and properties of volcanic ash-influenced soils of the region. This information is critical for developing sustainable management plans for the region's forested ecosystems.
