Development of new technologies in soil conservation and eco sustainability
Convener: Xiangzhou Xu | Co-conveners: Tingwu Lei, Paolo Tarolli, Peiqing Xiao
| Attendance Wed, 06 May, 14:00–15:45 (CEST)

Soil is the key element in the Earth System acting as a control on hydrological, biological, erosional and geochemical cycles. Moreover, the soils are a critical resource for food and fiber production that sustains human societies. Because of the crucial role that soils play in the Earth System, soil conservation is necessary to achieve a sustainable world. This session provides the premier forum for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of experimental, theoretical, and applied soil conservation and eco sustainability. The session will bring together leading researchers, engineers and scientists in the domain of interest from around the world. Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

Remote sensing
Lab experiments
Field experiments
Environmental regulation and monitoring
Economic technology and instruments
Modeling and decision support tools

Soil micromorphology
Surface and subsurface
Geomorphology and spatial
Erosional and depositional processes
Watershed geomorphology

Soil evolution and weathering
Soils and surface processes
Geomorphic change
Land use impacts on geomorphology
Landscape degradation and restoration
Applied soil science

Soil and water conservation
Environmental sustainability
Resource management
Sustainable cities
Health and the Environment
Hazardous substances and detection techniques

How to make a live online chat presentation in EGU 2020

Dear authors,
We are starting our first virtual General Assembly, which will be a historical landmark. Nevertheless, most scientists are not accustomed to the live online chat. The following guides may do help to your presentation:
(1) Prepare your presentation materials IN TEXT in advance of the session discussion. Remember please: hardly anyone has time to read the materials connected to your abstract before.
(2) Paste the text materials as soon as your presentation begins, and then wait the questions from the colleagues. The attached figure shows the chat webpage.
(3) Answer the questions in concise sentences. Attention please: you will not have enough time to write a very long discussion online.

Kind regards,

Conveners of SSS11.4 Development of new technologies in soil conservation and eco sustainability, EGU2020
