Understanding the Soil Underfoot: A post Graduate Training Course 2014

Understanding the soil underfoot was a NERC funding postgraduate 'summer school' run as a collaboration between The British Society of Soil Science, Lancaster University and The James Hutton Institute. The course was run over the course of a week in March 2014 and comprised a mixture of fieldwork, laboratory work and lectures. Some of which were broadcast live across the internet. This video gives an overview of the course what the students got out of it and how it has shaped their thinking. We hope to continue to be able to offer similar courses in the future.

The British Society of Soil Science is an established international membership organisation and charity committed to the study of soil in its widest aspects. It is funded primarily through subscriptions and income from publications. The Society acts as a forum for the exchange of ideas and provides a framework for representing the views of soil scientists to other organisations and decision making bodies. It promotes research by organising several conferences each year and by the publication of its two scientific journals, the European Journal of Soil Science, and Soil Use and Management. It promotes education through a number of initiatives aimed at schools, colleges and universities. The Society has a regular and varied programme of scientific conferences on a wide range of soil-related issues.

The British Society of Soil Science encourages anyone with an interest in soil, whether this interest lies in the soil itself or its wider use within the environment, to join the society. There is a small membership fee, with discounts for students and those from low income countries.
