Video: my interview with a soil scientist

Kate Buckeridge met with me in January in Lawrence, Kansas to discuss her research on soil microorganisms in the Arctic. In January, when much of the United States is covered with snow, it is easy to imagine that the soil is frozen and inactive. But Kate, who works in some extremely cold northern locations, is finding that there is a robust microbial community just below the snow. For more background on soil microorganisms and their role in the environment, please see the previous post*.
