Soils@Hutton - Soil analysis and characterisation

The James Hutton Institute has an international reputation for developing novel approaches for the analyses and characterisation of soils – chemical, physical and biological. We developed the spray dryer used in conjunction with XRD analysis and more recently the Microresp respiration system. We have an on-going programme developing molecular and DNA based techniques; alongside soil chemical (PLFA) and physical approaches such as "transparent soils". Our analytical facilities provide soil characterisation and chemical / physical data to ISO 9001 & ISO 17025 standards.
