Mats Larsbo
I am mainly doing research on solute transport in the unsaturated zone. My work spans from studies at the pore scale using X-ray tomography to the field scale where leaching of pesticides is the main focus. Numerical models are important tools in my research.



Ongoing projects:

  • Consolidation of agricultural topsoils after harrowing (2015-2016)
  • Modelling the effects of soil freezing on pesticide transport (part of SMARTCROP; 2015-2018)
  • Improved risk assessments of the impact of climate change on leaching of toxic metals from contaminated sites (2013-2016)
  • Mitigation of critical transport pathways for phosphorus and pesticides from common marine clay soils (2014-2017)
  • Pore network characteristics and preferential transport in cultivated soils (2013-2016)
