Soil is a three-dimensional living system, containing solids, liquids, and gases that together form the upper layer of the Earth’s surface. From soil sprouts food that feeds all forms of life. Yet soil performs other vitally important functions. Why is this seemingly simple substance so important in more ways than is realized?

Join us as Argonne soil scientist Umakant Mishra discusses the state of soil and the largely unknown roles it plays in the regulation and well-being of humanity.
