See how our current work and research is bringing new thinking and new solutions to some of today's biggest challenges. The Section of Soil and Crop Sciences addresses the challenge of developing environmentally sustainable agricultural systems to produce food on regional, national, and international scales through three major program areas: Soil Science, Crop Science, and Environmental Information Systems. Advance our understanding of biogeochemical cycles of carbon and nutrient elements in soil, providing important insight into regional and global element cycles which provide the basis for sustainable soil and land use management. Stabilization mechanisms of organic matter in soil nano-structures and the development of a biochar soil management technology that improves soil fertility, sequesters carbon and reduces off-site pollution. Research topics include: carbon sequestration in the context of climate change and black carbon dynamics; using synchrotron-based NEXAFS and FTIR for the micro- and nano-scale observation of biogeochemical cycles in soils; and the study of so-called Terra Preta de Indio Amazonian Dark Earths , anthropogenic soils.
Research Paper on How Plants Absorb Nutrients

The use of such fuels can be minimized by using alternative fuels which do not contain carbon or contain less carbon. The alternative fuels such as ethanol produced from renewable lignocellulosic resources or fuels produced from seawater. Research on improving ethanol production is accelerating for both economical and ecological reasons, primarily for its use as a alternative to Petroleum based fuels. Lignocellulosic biomass is the most abundant raw material in the world. Production of ethanol. The purpose of this project is to figure out which type of fuels is most efficient.
Research Paper On Parabola
Plants take sunlight and turn it into energy for them to use this energy is used to help the development of the plant and its growth. How are they going to grow their crops without the main source of energy to the plant? Most people in Alaska grow there plant indoors using an alternate light source. Brining us to your experiment on which type of light bulb will help a plant grow the same way it would if it had sunlight.
As spring has arrived, it's time once again to whip those gardens into shape. Before you hit the online nurseries, it's worth putting pencil to paper and drawing up a plan for things you would like to plant—don't forget to include ideas for ground cover plants! You should also consider the pros and cons of annuals vs. We vote that you check out the best perennial flowers and plants when drawing up your garden. By definition, perennial plants last more than two years.
