The Environmental Pedology Group focuses on soil forming processes and the importance of soils in ecosystem function and biogeochemical cycles. Our research and teaching program spans a broad range of topics including: i) organic and inorganic carbon cycling, with a focus on mineral weathering processes and the interaction of organic materials with mineral surfaces; ii) soil development control of soil-water dynamics and ecosystem response to climate change; iii) digital soil mapping and soil-landscape classification; and iv) energy-based modeling of pedogenesis and ecosystem function.
