Julio is using laser diffraction methods to quantify the particle size distribution of soil and subsoil samples from the Calhoun CZO. Julio’s work not only reveals how pedogenic gradients across the southeastern United States influence soil particle size distribution, but also how soil particle size distribution controls Earth surface properties and processes (including traditional soil biogeochemical properties, visible near infrared spectral properties, and even forest ecosystem C and N response to management). Julio is a member of Allan Bacon's Environmental Pedology and Land Use lab at the University of Florida.
