The Society of Soil Scientists of Southern New England is pleased to present a listing of its members who meet specific qualification standards in the field of soil science.  We believe that this Registry of Soil Scientists will help in answering private and public demands for professional soil science assistance in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.  Although persons listed in this Registry meet specific requirements, the Society is not responsible for quality or costs involved in work performance. 

The purpose of the Society Registry is to identify trained and qualified soil scientists, to foster and maintain professional competency, and to protect the public interest in the area of responsible use of soil and land resources.  Standards for the Registry are based on formal education in soil science and on field, research and teaching experience primarily as they relate to soil classification, mapping and interpretation.  The Society recognizes soil scientists in the private, municipal, state, and federal sectors.

This Registry includes current Professional and Basic Members of the Society of Soil Scientists of Southern New England.  The Board of Directors determines the qualification and rules on the enrollment of each member.
