Join Rebecca on an exciting GoPro adventure to study soil in the desert, grasslands, and pine forests of Arizona. On this excursion, you will take an early morning drive, cross streams, dig soil pits, admire beautiful soils, and even learn about how fire impacts soil from the perspective of a firefighter!

You will finish up this outing with a better understanding of soil science and why soil should not be referred to as that other 4-lettered word that we all know too well.

This project was funded through an outreach fellowship from CLIMAS (Climate Assessment for the Southwest). This video was also made possible through several programs at The University of Arizona including the Biosphere 2 Carson Scholars, the Flandrau Science Center, the Catalina Critical Zone Observatory (CZO), the Department of Soil and Water Science, and the School of Natural Resources and the Environment.
