Soil Chemistry


You are at the Home Page of Soil Chemistry Division of the Soil Science Society of America.

The SSSA Soil Chemistry Division is an active and dynamic group of soil and environmental scientists studying chemical processes relevant to soil systems. We are seeking Society and Division involvement and input from all individuals interested in Soil and Environmental Chemistry. Whether you are a member of this Division or not, there are many opportunities for you to participate. Find out how!

Soil Chemistry Division Meeting Planning- Get Involved!

We would like to make the membership aware of some activities and opportunities for 2017 Tri-societies meeting in Tampa.

1. We are in midst of soliciting ideas for topics for topical sessions and symposia for 2017. We need innovative ideas to keep having exciting scientific programs. If you are interested in organizing and convening a session/symposium, please contact Owen Duckworth (owen_duckworth@ncsu.edu) before January 15.

2.  We are also seeking nominations for the Soil Chemistry Incoming Division Chair elect (in charge of Soil Chemistry Program for the fall 2019 meeting in San Antonio) and a board representative for the Fundamental Soil Science Group. If you are interested in nominating a candidate, please contact Owen Duckworth (owen_duckworth@ncsu.edu) before January 15.

3.    After a one year hiatus, we plan to reinstate the graduate student competitions. Matt Ginder-Vogel, Samantha Ying, and Frank Yang have agreed to work on the competition. This is a big job and they will need help. If you’d like to help with this committee or serve as a judge, please Matt (mgindervogel@wisc.edu).

Other Ways to Get Involved

Our Division holds a Program Planning meeting every year on the Sunday before the national meeting of the Soil Science Society of America.This is an excellent forum for proposing symposia and topical sessions for upcoming meetings. Our Division Business meeting is always held Tuesday afternoon during the Soil Science Society of America national meeting.This meeting provides all Society members with direct input to issues of concern to them. Equally important, this is an opportunity to meet with your colleagues and participate in our lively discussions.

The Soil Chemistry Division publishes papers annually in Soil Science Society of America Journal.  The journal is always looking for eager and willing reviewers of manuscripts.  If you are interested in serving as a volunteer reviewer of soil chemistry papers please contact the Division Technical Editor Sabine Goldberg with your areas of expertise. If you would like to publish your soil or environmental chemistry research findings in Soil Science Society of America Journal, we welcome your contributions.

We are looking forward to comments and input from all soil and environmental chemistry enthusiasts. Tell us what  you think by either leaving us a message on the Soil Chemistry discussion board or emailing the Webmasters. JOIN US!
