Judit Schellenberger successfully defended her doctoral (PhD) dissertation entitled “Soil seed bank examinations in grassland types with different water regime” at MATE’s PhD School of Environmental Sciences on 30 September 2021.
The Researchers' Night, held across Europe, traditionally takes place on the last Friday of September each year for those interested in science. Our institute joined the program again this year, where we present the diversity of our field of science with our interactive programs.
Researchers from the Department of Soil Mapping and Environmental Informatics working with a senior scientist from ISRIC – World Soil Information and Wageningen University & Research have studied soil organic carbon (SOC) stock change between 1992 and 2010 at multiple aggregation levels in Hungary. Their results and findings have been published in Geoderma.
Researchers of the Department of Soil Biology together with the colleagues of the Department of Microbiology of the Eötvös Loránd University, studied the effect of soil salinity and pH on the microbial assemblages metabolic activity pattern and taxonomic composition of saline-sodic soil. The publication is available in the Microorganisms open-access journal.
Based on the decision of the "Complex Agricultural Science" expert body, Imre Cseresnyés, senior research fellow at ATK TAKI, won the support of the "OTKA" Young Researcher Excellence Program with his application entitled "Short-term monitoring of root dielectric response by non-destructive procedure".
The Institute for Soil Sciences, in cooperation with several Hungarian research institution has developed an Ammonia Gas Emission Model, called AGEM-S to assist the reduction of ammonia emissions in the Hungarian pig sector.
