More research on the importance of soil systems for urban infrastructure is coming from Europe. Lancaster University lecturer Dr Jess Davies is beginning a five-year study on new soil infrastructure simulation models and analyses that span food-water-carbon services. Dr Davies says, "Soils are a physical infrastructure in our environment that provides multiple services to society and ecosystems. But we don't have the blueprints of this infrastructure. We don't understand the resilience of this infrastructure to climate change or changing soil management." Find out more about Dr Davies soil research here.
