307 Natural and Manufactured Nanoparticles in Soils: II

Poster Session
S02 Soil Chemistry

The increase in production /usage of manufactured nanomaterials could lead to their introduction to soils and aquatic environments, affecting biogeochemical processes of ecological importance. In parallel, there is a growing body of evidence that highlights the pivotal role natural nanoparticles play in the same processes. This session seeks to bring together researchers working in these connected fields to share results and challenges and hence improve our general understanding of all things "NANO"scale in soils environments.
