  • SOIL

The MOCA platform offers a set of physical and chemical analytical methods to characterize soil samples. These analyzes provide information about soil properties (physical quality, chemical quality, etc.) and functioning (chemical alteration process, mobilization of pollutants, etc.) to improve the soil management in different environmental contexts (agricultural soils, forest soils, urban soils, volcanic soils, polar soils, etc.).

If its study is important, the soil remains a complex matrix requiring various analytical protocols according its characteristics. This is why, it is necessary to define your objectives before starting: What do you want to know? What do you already know? What are your constraints?
