Research Projects

Canadian researchers are exploring the mysteries of soil across the country! At this website you will find a brief description of several research projects (see the list on the right) carried out by soil scientists and graduate students.

Look at “The Story” to learn why each researcher is asking their question. The “Research Summary” will give you the inside scoop about the impacts of their research. A number of “Activities” are listed for you to explore more about the same concepts in your own lab or backyard. The “Explorer Profiles” will introduce you to these researchers.
