Soil Health and Carbon Assessment Tool

@ElaineViska joined the lab this summer to expand our work on soil health and carbon sequestration in Hawaii.  A new data synthesis and networking grant from USDA NIFA for a web-based soil health and carbon assessment, monitoring and planning tool will support her Ph.D. work.  Elaine comes from Iowa State University with a strong foundation in the principles of soil health as well as field, lab, and GIS skills.  We are excited for her soils expertise and look forward to the coming years of collaboration on a project with great meaning for Hawaii, where re-conceived farming systems play a critical role in collective climate change action and building resilience into the island landscape.   IMG_5932 2.jpg
