Dynamic Soils: Examining how soils respond to a changing climate
Soils play a vital role on Earth and are a key component in a wide range of dynamic processes. These include plant growth, nutrient cycling, regulation of atmospheric gases and storing carbon for hundreds to thousands of years.
Soils are not inert and the direct or indirect actions of humans can alter or disrupt the way soils normally function.
In this activity, staff and students of the University of Glasgow’s Environmental Science and Sustainability program will demonstrate some vital soil functions and consider how soil processes respond to a changing climate.
This exhibition is part of the Sustainable Solutions Showcase – a COP26 Exhibition from the University of Glasgow’s Centre for Sustainable Solutions.
