Chemical Features in SoilAuthor(s): Pusanisa Heepngoen
Soils transport and transfer water, provide homes for a variety of microbes and animals, and have a variety of rock and mineral designs. When soils and minerals are exposed to the elements throughout time, the composition of the soil changes as well. Whatever the case may be, nothing affects soil science more than people. A large number of current soil science topics are related to ecological sciences. What happens if a chemical is spilled on the dirt by accident? When it separates, how quickly does it do so? What categories do the treatments fall into? What will it do and how fast will it move? These model questions could be posed by a soil scientist. Soil scientists investigate concerns about natural and inorganic soil contamination, pesticides and other chemicals, and environmental health risks.
