Frontiers of Soil Science Workshop

The National Academy of Science-sponsored Frontiers of Soil Science project organized a workshop of soil science experts to address emerging research opportunities. Participants:

  • identified soil science research priorities;
  • identified inter-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary soil science research areas, particularly in the field of biogeoscience;
  • addressed the role of federal funding in soil science research, and;
  • identified technological and computational needs in advancing soil science.

Workshop participants were primarily scientists in academia and industry/consulting, and those who would recognize the importance of integrating the biological, geological, and chemical sciences within soil science.

Project sponsors included the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service, and the Soil Science Society of America.
