220 Advances in Tools and Techniques for Soil Chemical Investigation/Div. S02 Business Meeting

Oral Session
S02 Soil Chemistry

Many new spectroscopic methods and techniques are being applied to determine soil chemical speciation and study chemical processes on a molecular scale. Also, new techniques that allow in situ investigation of soil chemical contaminants, nutrients, and other constituents have been reported. The session will focus on advances in analytical instrumentation and in situ techniques to study soil chemical speciation and processes in soil.
