Exploring a Dynamic Soil Information System: A Workshop
March 2, 2021 - March 4, 2021
Join the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on March 2 – 4, 2021 for a workshop on Exploring a Dynamic Soil Information System.
A dynamic soil information system for the United States would overlay important chemical, physical, and biological information about soil samples taken across a wide range of geographies with information on influences on soils, such as land use and land management, soil moisture, weather, and other variables. This workshop will examine the level of detail needed by potential users of this combined information and envision how data on soils and other parameters can be most effectively collected, combined, and curated over time.
As part of this work, we are constructing a list of soils repositories/soil archives in the world. Please contribute to this effort by completing this quick survey for each of the soil repositories/archives with which you are familiar HERE. The list will be posted on the workshop’s website when complete and included in the workshop’s proceedings.
