143 Advancing Measurement Technology in Soil and Environmental Physics: An Original Research Instrumentation Showcase (includes student competition)

Poster Session
SSSA Division: Soil Physics
New and novel measurements are essential to expand our understanding of soil and plant processes. With rapidly changing technology, new possibilities are constantly emerging to advance our science in directions we have only dreamed of. This session will provide a forum to demonstrate innovative new prototype instruments and share ideas for improvements and applications with other scientists. From micro to macro, simple to complex, we invite all to participate in this exciting opportunity to celebrate innovation in soil science.
