Molecular-level studies of soil organic matter responses to environmental change
By Prof. Myrna J. Simpson, Department of Physical & Environmental Sciences and the Environmental NMR Centre, University of Toronto Scarborough, Canada
Soil organic matter (SOM) is critical to ecosystem function and sustainability. Variation in the earth’s climate has raised concerns about the stability of SOM stocks in various regions around the world.
The Ecohydrology Research Group, Geosyntec Consultants, and University Lille 1 with support from the French-Canada Research Fund are organizing a joint workshop on Environmental Electrokinetics: Advances in soil and water treatment.
