Projects

Structural Water Removal at optimal temperature

its a soil physics project which looked at making the Loss on Ignition method of assessing soil organic efficient. The Loss on Ignition method's efficiency is reduced by the presence of structural water in certain clay minerals which leads to over estimation of carbon determined using the Loss on Ignition method. However, the Loss on ignition method is a very safe and fast and cost effective means of determining organic carbon which relates to soil organic matter, an indicator of soil quality
