Soil Physics | Soil and Water Management
Sustainable Soil Management Laboratory (Arriaga)
Applied Soil Physics, Soil and Water Management and Conservation: Conservation agriculture systems; development of conservation tillage practices that enhance soil quality, soil hydraulic properties, and plant water use through the adoption of cover crops and non-inversion tillage for traditional cropping systems. Sustainable Soil Management Laboratory.
Soil Sensing and Monitoring Lab (Huang)
Soil Physics, Proximal and Remote Sensing, Digital Soil Mapping, Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere Interaction: Integrating proximal and remote sensing and process-based models to improve the fundamental understanding of water, carbon, nutrient, and energy cycles under climate change and human disturbance; combining soil sensing technologies, big data analytics, and machine learning to monitor, model, and map water, carbon, nutrient, and energy fluxes across scales for sustainable natural resources management.
