Trip to the Tropics

Several STARS students have managed to secure places on a fully funded Tropical Soils field trip to Brazil. The NERC funded trip, organised by Lancaster University in association with the Universidade Federal De Lavras, centres on a 6 day field trip to Lavras, Brazil. The course will include laboratory work, lectures and a collaborative research project, with a focus on description, classification, and chemistry of tropical soils together with the major land-use challenges in tropical regions and how these impact upon soils.
