Allan Bacon, Principal Investigator
The goal of Allan’s research is to unravel the complex natural and human dimensions of soil formation, and to use this information to better understand the processes and improve management of Earth’s surface. His current focus is on biogeophyisical processes of subsoil, drivers and implications of parent material variation on depositional landforms, and regional pedogenic and anthropedogenic interactions in the southeastern United States. Before joining the Soil and Water Sciences Department at the University of Florida Allan received a B.S. in Forestry from Northern Arizona, a Ph.D. from Duke University for his dissertation titled “Pedogenesis and Anthropedogenesis in the Southern Piedmont, and was a postdoctoral Research Associate in the School of Forest Resources and Conservation at the University of Florida.
