I like soil science and have several research interest; in some of these
we have active projects whereas others are somewhat dormant. Most of my
work has been on the application of fundamental soil science
to real-world problems. In the process of applying that knowledge we
gained some new insights. That's always rewarding.
Hobbies include the analysis of developments
in scientific publishing and the history of soil science,.
My main interests and research can be roughly divided into themes that
are partly overlapping - see below in alphabetical order.
