Assistant professor Hoori Ajami holds NIFA Conference

Riverside, Ca –

Assistant professor Hoori Ajami held a National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) Multistate Research Project conference last week focused on Soil, Water, and Environmental Physics Across Scales. 

"This year's annual meeting was exceptional as we had many participants compared to previous years discussing latest developments in instrument design, remote sensing and modeling approaches to study subsurface flow processes from local to regional scales", said Ajami.

As the project brings in a variety of colleagues and professors, there were over 70 attendants that came from all over the world. The multistate research project revolves around protection of US agriculture and environment through collaboration with others.

Additionally, it monitors various short term problems, like water quality and areas of salinity, and long term problems, acknowledging dominant processes affecting the transport of mass and energy through soil.
