The focus will be on “Understanding soil functions: from ped to planet”. To do this we will adopt a new style of conference, with traditional conference talks in the mornings, followed by a range of scientific and interactive topic masterclasses in the afternoons.
Day 1 – Soil functions for society: Land management and policy applications
Day 2 – Innovative methods for measuring soil functions: Lab, field or sensor technology
Day 3 – Modelling & mapping of soil functions across scales: Temporal, spatial and social
Day 4 – Can we understand synergies and trade-offs between soil functions? Primary productivity; biodiversity; nutrient cycling; water resources; carbon and climate regulation
