“Tests of Electrical Conductivity and Magnetic Susceptibility Surveying Methods for Mapping of Soils on Vacant Urban Land Use”


Sponsor: McDowell & Associates

Speaker: Jeffrey L. Howard, Ph.D. Wayne State University

5:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at Cleary University, Johnson Center, 3725 Cleary Drive, Howell. Click here for directions.

Dr. Jeffrey Howard has recently been on the forefront in mapping and understanding anthropogenic soils in SE Michigan. His work is important for many reasons. Environmental professionals understand how critical it is to know the where, how, and why of fill material on a site. The origin of the fill material affects its toxicity and you can’t use “anthropogenic” background in determining cleanup options.

Dr. Howard will be presenting on using remote sensing techniques and mapping anthropogenic soils (anthrosols) in Detroit, Michigan to distinguish between residential demolition,industrial,andflyash-impacted sites from native soils. Urban soils contain anthropogenic particles which differ as a function of former land use. Therefore, various types of anthrosols and native soils have unique chemical and geophysical signatures. Electrical conductivity and magnetic susceptibility surveying methods may be used to remotely sense and map urban soils more effectively than using traditional methods.

Dr. Howard’s work is also important purely from a geological history perspective. Humans are changing the world and most assuredly, we are leaving our mark on the globe. Who says geologists have to look thousands of years in the past when things are changing now!
