Chance will have the opportunity to travel to Toledo, Ohio and present his work on the effect of season and site conditions on soil microbial community activities in a high-elevation mixed conifer forest. This work is part of a larger research project being conducted by Dawson Fairbanks (PhD Candidate) and the Critical Zone Observatory. You can learn more about Chance's research interests here. Congratulations Chance!

The 2019 Earth week SNRExpo showcased the research of SNRE. The gallery lab showed some of the variety of the soils in Arizona and challenged visitors to create a well-draining soil profile and compete in water-infiltration races. Congratulations to SNRE's own Amy Hudson for first place!
