The research we are conducting in this study can be roughly divided into three parts:
- Studying the impact of prolonged flooding on soil chemical, biological and physical properties through detailed laboratory studies
- Monitoring the more long-term (9 months) impacts of flooding and subsequent recovery in our field monitoring study
- Comparing different types of management (e.g. sub soiling, sward lifting) used for alleviating flood damaged soils in our soil recovery study.
