Military Training on Semi-Arid Rangeland:

Assessment of potential training impacts on dominant soil types at Holloman Air Force Base


Please choose the type of training to be performed on Dune Margin soil types.

Dune margin-type sites feature nearly 100% gypsum soil and are situated less than 200 m from active sand dunes. These sites have normally experienced little in the way of previous anthropogenic disturbance. Compared to other site types, Dune margin-type sites are more sensitive to all types of disturbance. Training should be done cautiously with relatively long periods of time between repeated disturbances.
