The next seminar in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series, “Soils are Alive!” presented by Aditi Sengupta, Soil Scientist at PNNL, will take place on Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., via Zoom.
Soils are teeming with billions of microorganisms. Invisible to us, these microorganisms silently work to maintain soil health by breaking down organic matter and recycling nutrients in our environment. Microorganisms also support soil structure and promote plant growth and respond to changing environmental conditions, and in turn impact the overall ecosystem health. The spatial scales at which these interactions occur range from small nanometer scale to large-global scale. Discover what these microorganism are, what they do, why we need microorganisms to maintain healthy soil, and how soil microbiology research is helping inform global ecosystem change.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series was launched to help the general public better understand and explore how science transforms our world.
