UC Davis SRP Releases Research Updates

Superfund Research Program UC Davis

Check out the University of California (UC), Davis Superfund Research Program (SRP) Research Update No. 6, which highlights their recent accomplishments and findings related to soil amendments, health and diet, and hydraulic fracturing.

While the research update is aimed at California and Federal Government staff involved in legislation and regulation of toxic environmental substances, others involved in those environmental issues may also find value in the update.

Topics in the current edition include:

  • A Biochar Database , newly developed by the UC Davis SRP, for collecting detailed information about the new soil amendment material biochar.
  • An explanation of how pollutants might play a role in the efficacy of omega-3 fatty acids.
  • A showcase for researcher Thomas M. Young, Ph.D., whose work on controlling the fate and transport of contaminants in the environment led to his current participation on a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency panel to review current knowledge on the potential health effects of hydraulic fracturing.

Previous versions of the updates can be found on the UC Davis website .
