UC-Berkeley’s Photoblog: “Soil Hunting in Southern Patagonia”

University of California-Berkeley does a monthly newsletter for their Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management (ESPM) where they share what’s new in the department and it’s research. One of their spotlights this month was titled “Soil Hunting in Southern Patagonia”.  Marco Pfeiffer, a ESPM grad student and professor Ronald Amundson traveled to Southern Chile to study the relationship between soil, climate, and landscape. They documented their time in the Patagonian region of Magallanes in South Chile in this  photoblog:


The blog features great pictures of spodosols (one of the most handsome soil orders in my opinion)and talks about the interesting conditions of the region. I highly encourage everyone to check it out!
