Description

Diploma in Soil Science and Technology is a free online course that teaches you vital aspects of the soil composition, chemical processes, soil contaminants or pollutants, and advanced technologies for soil applications. This course will give you an in-depth understanding of soil processes and management for improved soil fertility and suitability. First, you will be introduced to soil formation processes, pathways of weathering, and soil classification and taxonomy.

Next, you will study important soil concepts such as soil structure, porosity, consistency, soil water, and soil temperature. You will also learn about chemical processes that occur in the soil from silicate clay, charges in soils, and Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC). Then, you will take a look at soil chemistry, problematic soils such as submerged soils, and essential plant nutrients. You will also discuss the process of biological nitrogen fixation, soil testing requirements, and land degradation issues. Finally, you will study the remediation of soil pollutants, remote sensing in soil survey, and other advanced technologies for soil applications such as GIS, GPS, DSM, and PXRF.

By taking this free online course from Alison, you will gain useful knowledge of soil science and technological advancements as you explore the numerous soil processes and potential soil applications. This comprehensive course will be of interest to students, researchers, soil scientists, and anyone with an interest in improving soil conditions and soil management. Enroll for this course today and give your knowledge of soil processes and mangement a boost!
