Discover the research of the OPAL Soil Centre

People taking part in the Soil and Earthworm Survey

From the outset of the soils project, Master's degree students from Imperial College's MSc in Environmental Technology have been involved in its conception, design and subsequent analysis of survey data.

This has helped the Soil Centre to keep the project focused not just on aspects of public engagement and participation, but also on the very real use of publically-collected data for scientific research.
