Water and Soil Lab

Welcome to the home page of the Water and Soil Lab, a dynamic and innovative research group

Water and soil lab at ATREE was established in April 2013.

Our broad mission is to carry out research on water quality issues. The laboratory is well equipped to measure and quantify various physical, chemical and biological pollutants in water and soil.

The lab consists of three units:


1. Ongoing Projects:
