The Monash Soil Carbon Program is a multidisciplinary program that pulls together Monash’s considerable soil research expertise under the stewardship of the Monash Sustainability Institute (MSI). The program brings together researchers from MSI, the School of Biological Sciences, the School of Chemistry, the Department of Civil Engineering, the Centre for Green Chemistry and the School of Geography and Environmental Science.
Our joint aim is to address the sustainability and climate change challenges of soil health, soil productivity and carbon storage in Australia.
The program’s researchers are particularly interested in investigating sustainable solutions to improve soil quality. The program seeks to increase our understanding of soil carbon processes and function to improve land management strategies and better inform public policy.
