Angstroms to acres: Studies of organic matter-mineral interaction across scales

Thursday, May 10, 2018 at 12:20pm to 1:10pm

Emerson Hall, 135

Dissolved organic matter (DOM) adsorption on minerals plays an important role in many functions of soils, including the long-term immobilization of carbon by soils. These interactions exist across scales in the environment, with implications from field to molecular levels. Work spanning these scales is presented, highlighting DOM dynamics in agricultural soils under different management as well as mechanistic molecular-level studies of model biomolecule-mineral interactions, including protein and DNA interaction with common soil minerals.
