The International Soil Modeling Consortium interviewed Brigitta Szabó, Senior Research Fellow at our institute, about her research related to the activities of the Pedotransfer Funcions Working Group and the work of the Consortium.
Soil-dwelling mite and springtail assemblages were studied in winter wheat and maize plantations within a long-term fertilisation experiment in Martonvásár for two years. The results are published in Q1 journal Applied Soil Ecology.
In our publication in Journal of Maps, we mapped the phosphorus content of the Lake Balaton sediment with ammonium lactate extractant using various environmental auxiliary variables and regression kriging. Our article published in Water is about a geostatistical method we have developed that allows the joint modeling of the phosphorus and nitrogen contents of lake sediments and the prediction of changes in their relative proportions.
The lecture day scheduled for 30 November will be postponed for an indefinite period. In the hope of achieving the widest possible in-person attendance, the new date will be rescheduled once the epidemiological situation improves significantly.
Researchers at the Institute for Soil Sciences examined soil CO2 emission (soil respiration) and its main drivers (soil temperature, soil water content and plant activity) under field conditions. The study was published in Q1 journal Soil and Tillage Research.
Through the donation of academician Tibor Jermy and his wife, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences awards the prize every year to young biologists who carry out their research work in the field of theoretical and applied zoology.
A 75-day pot experiment by researchers of ATK TAKI aimed to investigate the fertiliser value and organic matter replenishment capacity of digested sewage sludge and the compost and vermicompost made from it. The results were published in the Q1 journal Agronomy.
Our institute was involved in the award ceremony four times: Gábor Szatmári was awarded the Róbert Bárány Prize, while Péter Csathó, Kálmán Rajkai and Tibor Tóth were awarded the title of Research Professor Emeritus.
