Biogeochmistry in Managed Soil and Water Systems for Mitigating Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Improving Water Quality

Biogeochemistry is an interdisciplinary study exploring the physical, chemical and biological processes which are mediated by both biotic and abiotic components, which result in the cycling of elements, such as carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus, etc. Human activities have substantially altered the biogeochemical cycling of several key elements in the soil and water systems, leading to adverse environmental consequences including but not limited to soil health and water degradation, loss of habitat and biodiversity, and increased greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. Drawing upon the knowledge of biogeochemistry, this talk will present projects using nature and ecological engineering based solutions to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and enhance water quality.
