Soil Sustains Humanity – Argonne Out Loud

June 16, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

| Free

Soil is a three-dimensional living system, containing solids, liquids, and gasses that together form the upper layer of the Earth’s surface. From soil sprouts food that feeds all forms of life. Yet soil performs other vitally important functions. Why is this seemingly simple substance so important in more ways than are realized?

Join Argonne as resident soil scientist Umakant Mishra discusses the state of soil and the roles it plays in the regulation and well-being of humanity.
