Research in the WUR chair group Soil Physics and Land Management (SLM) addresses soil physical and hydrological processes at different temporal and spatial scales, and their central role in sustainable land and water management. Specific attention is given to flow and transport processes of water and solutes through and over the soil system, and their effects on crops, vegetation and the groundwater. Our vision is to develop and advance both fundamental and applied knowledge of soil physics and land management and the research skills of future scientists. Hence, focussing our research on the interactions between land use and management and soil physical processes using innovative approaches and methodologies that link different disciplines and engage stakeholders.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 955334.
