I am interested in the connection between soils and water quality. In my research, organisms, geology and chemistry meet in so-called biogeochemical interactions between forest soils and water. Above all, I study how forestry and climate change can affect soil and water. My research is based on observations and experiments, largely from the field research area Krycklan near Umeå, but also national datasets from SLU's national monitoring programs Riksskogtaxaringen and Markinventeringen. A long-term goal is to find solutions that balance the demands for increased forest production with environmental considerations. That's where detailed, accurate maps come into the picture. So far we have developed a new soil moisture map, peat map and ditch map for Sweden. With better map data, you can get better decision-making data.
