In collaboration with the researchers of the University of Naples Federico II, our senior scientist Brigitta Szabó analysed the efficiency of European hydraulic pedotransfer functions (PTFs) available from the literature. The results of this research was published in the Journal of Hydrology: Regional Studies, which is a highly ranked journal in the field of Water Science and Technology (D1).
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.
