Examining charcoal impacts on soil properties at Liège

Mihai Cimpoiasu reports on his 3-month placement at the University of Liège in Belgium where his expertise in imaging technology and geoelectrical methods was put to good use in quantifying the impact on soil structure, of long-term accumulation of charcoal.  While much work has been done on the short-term effects of charcoal on soil, there is a lack of research on the long-term effects. Read what Mihai has to say about this productive and enjoyable placement here: M.Cimpoiasu placement.
