We have obtained recently two new equipment for lab teaching in GEL 5150: Soils and Soil Pollution course. This will start in Spring-Winter 2021. As a part of this course, we will be incorporating the use of Surface Area Analyzer, demonstration of soil organics extraction, filtration, and pH measurements. This is a very useful, hands-on experience for our students and expected to significantly augment the learning experience.
