Recent research project objectives include:
- Estimating cropping and tillage system impacts on soil erosion across Iowa
- Identifying wheel loads necessary cause soil compaction in Northeast China
- Estimating soil loss associated with ephemeral gully formation
- Estimating phosphorus loss in runoff water based on soil erosion and water runoff estimates
Explore the living and vast ecosystem under our feet. Soil science covers chemistry of the soil, fertility, management, microbiology and biochemistry, morphology and genesis as well as soil physics.
