Abstract : This article summarizes the methods for delineating wetlands that have been published as the Corps of Engineers Wetlands Delineation Manual. It provides an abbreviated version of the manual and lists the wetland indicators and steps in the basic procedure for making routine and atypical wetlands determinations. This procedure does not replace that described in the manual, but serves as a reminder of steps required for making wetland determinations. The user should be familiar with both the manual and the terms used in this reference; many details and cautionary statements contained in the manual are omitted here. The user is referred to the manual for details. This abbreviated version is also being printed on waterproof paper in a size that will fit into the loose leaf binder used for the Munsell soil color charts and will serve as a field reference.
