Vivian Lopez Defends MS Thesis

Vivian Lopez successfuly defended her MS Thesis entitled “Biochar as soil amendment: Impact on hydraulic and physical properties of an arable loamy sand soil”. Vivian’s research showed reseach showed that biochar increases soil infiltration capacity of arable soils that are typical of Merced region. Her results are particularly relevant for agricultural systems that are impacted by salt accumulation due to irrigation uisng groundwater. Farmers typically use expensive water treatment practices to counter the soil sealing effects of groundwater.
