News: Acid Sulfate Soils Centre
University of Adelaide scientists have developed a new simple, inexpensive and fast method to detect and measure very low concentrations of agricultural lime in soils, which is generally a time consuming and difficult exercise.
Scientists have come up with a simple new test to analyse sulfur isotopes which can be used to help investigate chemical changes in water.
The food we eat, the clothes we wear, the air we breathe, the water we drink – it’s all underpinned by healthy and productive soils.
Scientists highlight the physical and chemical changes that occur during droughts that lead to severe, and sometimes irreversible, drying of wetland soils.
