Complex Soil Systems conference hosted by Berkeley Lab

On September 3-5, 2014, ESD’s Eoin Brodie and Boris Faybishenko co-chaired the first Complex Soil Systems Conference at the David Brower Center in downtown Berkeley. This flagship conference, with the common theme of developing “A Path to Improved Understanding of Complex Soil Systems,” made a unique contribution to integrated soil sciences by addressing soil-science fundamentals and bridging gaps in current scientific knowledge. More than 170 scientists from a variety of backgrounds and 13 different countries attended the conference, representing many scientific fields—including ecology, hydrology, geophysics, agriculture, soil chemistry, soil physics, soil microbiology, and modeling of soil-climate interactions.
