Webinar: Soils and the Environment
Author: Michael Penzo
This Live Webinar course provides an overview of soils and their relationship to the environment. Soil supports plant life, and soil properties are critical for waste disposal. The impacts of natural hazards are greatly affected by soil properties. Soil consists of solid earth materials altered by physical, chemical, and biological processes. Land-use planning is critical for the determination of soil suitability – soil suitability is a large part of land capability and limitations. By studying paleosoils we can determine the nature of past climates.
This Live Webinar course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Overview of soil and how it is affected by physical, chemical, and biological processes
- Importance of soil for plant life, waste disposal, and land use
- Relationship between paleosoil and climate history
