Our interdisciplinary team of scientists has helped advance the science of soil carbon, from unraveling the key roles of microbes to creating the sophisticated models that underlie climate change predictions and enable soil carbon quantification. Members of our team have spun out companies to commercialize and scale soil carbon products and services and have integrated soil carbon, greenhouse gas, and economic models to inform the design of soil carbon incentives. We know what it takes to implement solutions at scale and our team covers the gamut, from science to innovation to implementation.
