Scope (include but not limited to):

▲Sources and contamination pathways of soil pollutants, such as atmospheric deposition, flooding, etc.

▲Biogeochemistry of potentially toxic elements (heavy metals and metalloids), organic contaminants, and emerging contaminants in the soil environment.

▲Amendments for the sustainable remediation of multiple potentially toxic elements.

▲In-situ remediation of organic contamination, including those for vadose zone and groundwater.

▲Risk mitigation of emerging contaminants, such as PFASs, micro(nano)plastics, etc.


主旨报告人:西澳大学Nanthi Bolan教授

Keynote speech by Prof. Nanthi Bolan: The ground's generosity takes in our compost and grows beauty: Compost and biochar application promote soil health and productivity


Nanthi Bolan is a Professor at the University of Western Australia. He has served as the Dean of Graduate Studies of the University of South Australia and as the Program Leader of the Cooperative Research Centre for High Performance Soil (Soil CRC). His teaching and research interests include agronomic value of manures, fertilizers and soil amendments, soil acidification, carbon and nutrient cycling, pesticide and metal pollutants interactions in soils, soil remediation and waste and waste water management. Nanthi and his research team have been able to identify the causes for the decline in soil health and have also developed innovative methods to improve soil health to achieve food security. He has published more than 500 papers and has been recognized as a Highly Cited Researcher (2018-21; Clarivate Analytics). Nanthi is a Fellow of the American Society of Soil Science, American Society of Agronomy and the New Zealand Soil Science Society. He has supervised more than 50 PhD students and was awarded Massey University Research Medal for Best Supervisor (2005).
