Tracking dust’s phosphorus sources to Lake Kinneret and Agamon, Hula Valley
In collaboration with Prof. Iggy Litaor, Dr. Yaron Beeri-Shalvin
This research aims to understand the phosphorus contribution to local water bodies through dust deposition, by collecting and analyzing dust samples throughout Lake Kinneret and Hula valley watershed. Conducted by Adi Zarka.
In collaboration with Prof. Iggy Litaor, Dr. Ofer Shir
The study examines the ability to determine management units in agricultural fields and accordingly the proper management of soil sampling and fertilization programs. The research use of proximity and remote sensing tools. Conducted by Nitsan Malachy.
Improvement of potassium fertilization
In collaboration with Prof. Iggy Litaor, Prof Moshe Shenker, Dr. On Rabinovich and Tito Nathanzon.
This research examines the improvement of plant's potassium availability by introducing compost and zeolites combinations to the soil. Conducted by Ben Hakimi.
Dr. Oren Reichmann
Department of water Science
Dr. Oren Reichmann main focuses are on soil and water ecology with emphasis on spatial ecology. He is intrigued by the movement of phosphor in the ground and through the water basin. Using spatial ecology and mapping methods Oren studies both basic theoretical issues and applied agriculture research.
Adi is a M.Sc. student at Tel-Hai College, department of Water Science. She did her undergraduate studies at the department of Environment Sciences at Tel-Hai.
Using a vast array of field samplers, Adi is examining the dust settling over Lake Kinneret and Lake Hula in order to understand its nature and sources, focusing on phosphorus sources to dust.
Shalev is a M.Sc. student at Tel-Hai College, department of Water Science. He did his undergraduate studies at the department of Biotechnology at Tel-Hai. Studying the correlation between soil electro-magnetic conductivity and soil properties in order to enhance agricultural management. Shalev is a part of a new precise agriculture project in our lab.
Ben is a M.Sc. student at Tel-Hai College, department of Water Science. He did his undergraduate studies at the department of Environment Sciences at Tel-Hai.Conducting field and lab experiments,Ben aims are improving soil’s fertility and crop potential by enlarging plants potassium availability, using both compost and zeolites augmentationto soil.
Nitzan is a M.Sc. student at Tel-Hai College, department of Water Science. He did his undergraduate studies at the department of Environment Sciences at Tel-Hai. Nitzans" aim is building a statistical model based on correlation between multi spectral imagery achieved by drones and soil samples data. This will be used to determine a better fertilizing management. Nitzan is also a part of our new precise agriculture project.
