The U.S. National Committee for Soil Science, in consultation with colleagues in the soil science community, identified a need for a workshop to identify and discuss the emerging areas of basic and multidisciplinary research in soil science and possibilities of integration with other disciplines.  December 2005, The National Research Council (NRC) convened a group of experts in soil science and associated disciplines to identify emerging research opportunities and applications of expected associated advances in soil science, particularly in the integration of biological, geological, chemical, and information technology sciences.  The session will report to SSSA membership the results of this workshop and discuss direction of research and funding for soil science
