CEE Professor Thanos Papanicolauo’s Research Featured in Editors’ Vox, Perspectives on Earth and space science: a blog from the AGU’s journal editors

CEE Professor Thanos Papanicolaou’s research on soil in U.S. Midwest, which is known for intensive agriculture and high crop production,  is featured on Editors’ Vox, Perspectives on Earth and space science: a blog from the AGU’s journal editors. In the post entitled “Stories on the Soil,” Papanicolaou outlines how his research seeks to unravel how past human activities and climate have led to the current state of soils used for agriculture, how current activities continue to affect the soils, and how future climate is likely to interact with human activities to affect future soil states. Included in the blog post is a link to a video at Clear Creek in Iowa, which features a typical rainfall experiment designed to specifically mimic natural rainfall effects on landscapes with different soil types, management, and topographic properties.
