Evidence of traffic-related pollutant control in soil-based Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS)
(IWA Publishing, 2009)
SUDS are being increasingly employed to control highway runoff and have the potential to protect groundwater and surface water quality by minimising the risks of both point and diffuse sources of pollution. While these ...
Automated statistical method to align 2D chemical maps with 3D X-ray computed micro-tomographic images of soils
Recent 2-dimensional measurements reveal that soils are chemically very heterogeneous at nanometric and micrometric scales. Direct measurement techniques are still lacking to extend these observations to 3 dimensions. ...
Modeling soil system: complexity under your feet
(European Geosciences Union/Copernicus Publications, 2011)
Modelling and quantifying the effect of heterogeneity in soil physical conditions on fungal growth
(Copernicus Publications, 2010)
Despite the importance of fungi in soil ecosystem services, a theoretical framework that links soil management strategies with fungal ecology is still lacking. One of the key challenges is to understand how the complex ...
Some aspects of interrelations between fungi and other biota in forest soil
Interrelations of fungal mycelium with other soil biota are of paramount importance in forestry and soil ecology. Here we present the results of statistical analysis of a comprehensive data set collected in the first (and ...
Combining X-ray CT and SEM-EDX to characterize soil micro-sites
Microbial distribution in soils: physics and scaling
In a handful of fertile soil there are billions of microorganisms and yet, even with a conservative estimate, the surface area covered by these organisms is considerably less than 1%. What does this tell us about the ...
Method to quantify short-term dynamics in carbon dioxide emission following controlled soil deformation
(American Society of Agronomy, 2000)
Tillage of soils often decreases soil organic matter content and increases CO2 emission. Enhanced CO2 emission induced by tillage may provide an early indication of the likely consequences of soil management on soil organic ...
Soil structure, fungal exploration and consequences for biocontrol
Chemical enhancement of soil based footwear impressions on fabric
This study investigates the enhancement of footwear impressions prepared with soils from different locations on a variety of fabric surfaces with different morphology. Preliminary experiments using seventeen techniques ...
