Layla M. San-Emeterio

Layla M. San-Emeterio is a PhD student at the Institute of Natural Resources and Agrobiology of Seville, Spain (Spanish National Research Council; IRNAS-CSIC). Her research focuses on soil organic matter carbon turnover rates in representative Mediterranean soils from southern Spain, which are highly endangered by anthropogenic factors such as climate changes and inappropriate agricultural practices. By coupling conventional analytical pyrolysis (Py-GC/MS) and compound-specific isotopic analysis (Py-GC/IRMS), she sought to acquire geochemical knowledge about the main drivers that could affect SOM structure and turnover according to SOM main biogenic components. She is currently one of the main editors of the Soil Sciences System EGU Blog, which has been recently relaunched after a period of inactivity.

ReSOILutions in Soil Science for 2021

ReSOILutions in Soil Science for 2021

On Thursday 4th February, the EGU’s Soil System Sciences (SSS) Division held its first ever Campfire. Launched across the EGU in 2019, EGU Campfires are small, informal events that are set up for members of a division, particularly the Early Career Scientists (ECS), to get to know one another, exchange ideas and views, fuel collaboration, build long lasting friendships, and strengthen professional ...[Read More]

Early Career Scientist representative: how to become one in a few easy steps!

Early career scientist representatives are a crucial link between the EGU and the early career scientist community. They are vital in providing feedback from students and early career researchers so that we can take action to improve our early-career scientist’s activities at the EGU General Assembly and maintain our support for early-career scientists throughout the year. The ECS website br ...[Read More]
