Vital soil and clean environment

Physical, chemical and microbiological processes as tools to produce clean food and groundwater and other ecosystem services, to utilize and recycle wastes and industrial by-products, to manage environmental loading and to remediate polluted sites. A clean soil is the prerequisite for vital biota and material cycling in ecosystem.

  • Properties and reactions of soil components affecting the mobility and transport of substances and emissions of greenhouse gases
  • Quality of surface waters as affected by characteristics and use of watershed soils
  • Quality and safety of foods as related to the soil properties
  • Biological and chemical remediation methods
  • Real-time monitoring of soil processes
  • Soil chemistry as a scientific basis for national and international legislation and decision making
