Soil Health at AGU 2020

Please consider submitting an abstract to the following soil health session at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting. Submissions are due July 29

This will be a mostly-virtual meeting, with much of the content available on-demand from Dec 1-17, 2020, and much of the live content occurring Dec 10-17.

We are planning a great panel discussion on the connectivity of soil organic matter, soil function, and soil health, with scientists representing the spectrum of on-the-farm to theoretical research. Invited speakers include Johan Six (ETH Zurich), Asmeret Berhe (UC Merced), Jeff Mitchell (UCANR), Kristin Veum (USDA-ARS), and Eric Slessarev (LLNL). 

In addition to the panel, we seek contributions for oral and poster sessions from the community.

Although not formalized yet, the planning committee has shared that “oral” sessions will likely combine pre-recorded talks with a live Q+A session. “Poster” sessions will likely be held using the platform AGU has used in the past for eLightning sessions. This will allow presenters to create a digital interactive poster (examples from Fall Meeting 2019 are available here).

Please submit abstracts here.


Claire Phillips (USDA-ARS), Daniel Liptzin (Soil Health Institute), and Susan Crow (Univ of Hawaii)
