Taking place in London, next week - Tuesday 19th November - this seminar will be a timely opportunity to examine priorities for climate change adaptation - including discussion around resilient infrastructure, environmental governance and the impact of policy developments.
The WCSS is a leading international soil science conference, held every 4 years in different countries and attended by over 3000 soil scientists from around the globe.
A little reminder that we will be closing registrations for the 2019 Agricultural Land Classification Course shortly so if you - or a colleague - would like to book, please do so as soon as possible.
The latest update from the International Union of Soil Sciences (170, August 2019) is now available here

By moving beyond the surface level and literally digging deep, scientists at the University of California, Davis, found that compost is a key to storing carbon in semi-arid cropland soils, a strategy for offsetting CO2 emissions.
