  • Even soil feels the heat

    Twenty years of field studies reveal that as the Earth has gotten warmer, plants and microbes in the soil have given off more carbon dioxide. So-called soil respiration has increased about one-tenth of 1 percent per year since 1989, according to an analysis of past studies in this week's issue of Nature. The scientists also calculated the total amount of carbon dioxide flowing from soils, which ...

  • Triad expedites brownfields redevelopment in Fairbanks

    The Fairbanks North Star Borough (FNSB) used Triad in 2006-2007 to assess environmental conditions at a municipal property along the Chena River in Fairbanks, AK. FNSB accelerated the site investigation as part of a brownfields assessment grant received from the U.S. EPA in 2005. Low-level contamination had been identified onsite in past investigations, but its extent and impact on future ...

  • Soil Association welcomes Climate Change Committee report

    Lord Turner’s recommendations will lead to unimaginable changes in British farming.

  • Sophisticated soil analysis for improved land use

    Soil variation occurs across multiple geographic scales ranging from vast climatic regions of the Earth to a 50 acre farm field to the molecular world of soil nano-particles in a pinch of soil. For example, in a forest or an agricultural field, soil properties vary from the summit of a hill down to the base. Within a single soil aggregate that may be less than a quarter inch in diameter, there ...
