ACLCA NSW is pleased to announce that we will be running our very successful Soil Logging Workshop again in 2021, on Wednesday 16th June.
Participants of this half-day soil logging workshop will hone their skills in field-based description and classification of soils in accordance with the Australian Standard AS1726:2017 Geotechnical site investigations. Reference to NZGS 2005 (the equivalent New Zealand standard) may also be made throughout the workshop, for the benefit of those who may have current or future projects in NZ.
Using picture-rich PowerPoint and practical demonstrations of soil texturing technique, while wearing appropriate PPE, participants will be walked through the benefits of accurate soil logging and the process of describing soils sampled from boreholes, test pits and stockpiles, all in the context of site characterisation for contaminated land investigations.
Throughout the workshop participants will practice each step of the soil logging process under the trainer’s guidance. As well as receiving two clean soil samples representing fine-grained and coarse-grained soils, participants will safely explore fill samples with a range of common constituents.
