Dylan E. Beaudette

Dylan E. Beaudette - JeepDylan Beaudette is currently a soil scientist working for the NRCS on soil survey in the Sierra Foothill Region of California. He was formerly a graduate student in the Soils and Biogeochemistry group at UC Davis. He is interested in applying numerical methods to soil survey, soil classification, and towards a more complete understanding of soil genesis. Dylan is currently working on several studies related to scaling soil survey information down to the landscape-scale, and up to the regional scale. These experiments involve (sensor-calibrated) quantification of soil climate, modeling of geomorphic surfaces, and estimation of within map unit variability. Dylan is also interested in the potential Soil Survey has to become a valuable educational tool. Open source software is used in all of his research, data management, analysis, and presentation tasks. Occasionally he posts snippets from his research here.
