Managing Global Resources for a Secure Future

2017 Annual Meeting | Oct. 22-25 | Tampa, FL

276 Symposium--New Ideas and Instruments in Pedology (includes student competition)

Oral Session
SSSA Division: Pedology
Great progress has been made in the systematic study of soils. Further progress is needed to advance our understanding which includes a combination of new technologies and sound scientific theory. This session focuses on new ideas and technologies and instruments (tools, techniques, methodologies) that improve the study of soil in the field.
