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 Outcrop soil types.

The soil at Outcrop-type sites is partially-indurated gypsum exposed at and near the soil surface. Compared to Dune Margin and Transition-type sites, there is more evidence of previous anthropogenic disturbance. This the most suitable site type for all training types due to its high resistance and resilience to disturbance. Also, training can be repeated more frequently than at other site types.
