Environmental Soil Science

Soil quality is an essential part of healthy ecosystems. Research in soil science focuses on water and nutrient cycling in agricultural and forested ecosystems, soil carbon sequestration, greenhouse gas emissions from soils, and the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbance on soil quality with implications for forest and crop production.
