About this program

MSc in Soil and Water Sciences

The topics taught and researched at the Soil and Water Sciences teaching program all pertain to soil, water and the atmosphere.

In the semi-arid to arid Israel, various factors – such as the soil interface, the transfer of water and solutes to the plant and the groundwater, drainage, development of sophisticated methods of soil cultivation, irrigation and fertilization, the identification of marginal water resources and development of effective water use methods – are all essential conditions for the existence and development of modern agriculture. The intensive exploitation of natural resources in Israel, particularly of water and soil resources, has led to severe depletion and gave rise to profound environmental problems pertaining to the contamination of soil, surface water, ground water and atmosphere. These problems call for in-depth research and consideration of all aspects of the sustainable use of natural resources, including examination of options for recycling agricultural, industrial and urban waste
