Our research group hosted the 2019 National Soil Moisture Workshop, which included a graduate student poster competition. More than 100 people from 35 state and national agencies attended the workshop. Learn more about. Link
Installing a cosmic-ray neutron detector for soil moisture monitoring at the Konza Prairie. Picture was taken while Pedro Rossini (visiting scholar) and Nathaniel Parker (Phd student) were mounting an air and relative humidity sensor.
Dr. Keith Bristow (CSIRO, Townsville, Australia) visited our lab and interacted with graduate and undergraduate students about their research project. Dr. Bristow was the 2018 Ellis Lecturer in the Department of Agronomy.
Nathaniel Parker sampling the Kansas Mesonet station near Clay Center, KS. The project involves the characterization of the soil physical properties of each station.
