Crop and Soil Science Departmental Seminar

Dr. Scott Fendorf: "The unforseen metabolic constraint on soil carbon mineralization"

Monday, April 16, 2018 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Scott Fendorf is the Huffington Professor of Earth Sciences and Senior Associate Dean in the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Science at Stanford University.  Scott’s research seeks to understand the extent and pathways by which metal contaminants enter our food and water, and to decipher controls on soil carbon cycling to improve prediction of global carbon budgets and potential management practices to limiting greenhouse gas emissions.  To obtain this goal, he and his group examine the coupled chemical, biological, and hydrological processes controlling the cycling of elements ranging from carbon to arsenic and uranium within soils and sediment.
