We collaborate on scientific projects that address some of the big soils-related environmental challenges faced in New Zealand and Antarctica. Through the projects we seek to understand existing and emerging pressures, as well as threats to and opportunities for our soil and associated natural resources, such as water. These include land-use change, intensification, climatic pressures, legacy effects (e.g. forest clearance), and environmental protection of soils (e.g. Antarctica).

Our projects draw on the expertise and skills of our soil and informatics scientists, our soil labs, and decades of data and field sites, as well as our Manaaki Whenua colleagues who work in diverse areas of environmental science.
